Higham to Gravesend
This walk originally took place on 19th July but you can follow the walk yourself using the information below.
Walk 14 of T100 Welcome to the Kitchen Table
From Higham Train station head to Church Street where you can pick up the Saxon Shore Way and make your way along the North Kent Marshes to Gravesend.
The walk originally finished with a warm welcome at LV21 a 40 metre steel-hulled lightship that has been transformed into a floating art space and performance facility on the riverfront. Check the opening times and perhaps you can visit too!
After the walk we were fortunate to be able to visit a food and drink themed twilight market at the historic Gravesend Borough Market. Special events occasionally happen at the market so check their website for future dates.
(Please note there are limited public facilities on this route. There are public toilets on the prom which is about 20 mins from the end. )

T100 walks are of different lengths and on different terrain. Some are mainly on footpaths, and others mainly on footpaths where ground may be uneven. If this walk doesn’t suit you, there is probably another one that will.
You need to choose walks within your capabilities; the walk leaders are experienced but must take your word that you are sufficiently fit for the grade of walk you have chosen.
Due care has been exercised in organising the walks, however Kinetika, the funders and associated partners of the project cannot accept liability for loss, accident or injury caused to any person following the routes. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
What to bring
Please ensure that you are properly equipped for all walks. The weather can be unpredictable so bring waterproof clothing and/or sun hats and sun cream – it’s best to be prepared for everything!
Walking boots/shoes are recommended, but otherwise please wear suitable and comfortable footwear- best to leave open-toe sandals or high heels at home. Make sure you bring a packed lunch, if necessary, and plenty to drink.
