You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Dental Surgeries

Gravesend Dental Clinic

Excellent dental clinic. Whole family been with practice for many years. Some dentists move on quite quickly but all have been very caring and professional. Reception staff very friendly and helpful.

Excellent dentists. So caring and look after you well

Novel Dental Group - Gravesend Dental Surgery

79 Leander Dr, Gravesend DA12 4NF, UK – 01474 352990

I was recommended to this surgery when I had a painful tooth. I was seen by Dr Amin as an emergency, who I can only highly recommend. He took time out of his own lunch to see me. He removed the tooth within minutes and the pain was instantly gone. I now regularly visit this surgery for check-ups and other treatment. I have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful and the surgery has always been clean.

Valley Drive Dental Practice

213 Valley Dr, Gravesend DA12 5SG, UK – 01474 328866

Very poor communication between the reception staff and the patient. After my first visit I was misinformed about further steps that had to be taken. If I didn't call after a month I would wait for my referral forever. During the second visit the dentist apologised for the situation and I appreciate it. However, the receptionist did not tell me that I needed to pay for this visit. As a result, after a week I received a letter informing me about an overdue payment. I had to waste my time and fuel again to go there and pay. Initially, I didn't want to do it as I wasted a month waiting for the referral that would never come anyway. Meeting with the dentist was a no problem one. She was very informative and kind.

A great dentists. Always get an appointment in an acceptable time. I find the staff all really friendly. Never had to wait for my appointment. Highly recommend.

Pelham Medical Practice

17 Pelham Rd, Gravesend DA11 0HN, UK – 01474 355331

Only place that has taken blood and not severely bruised my arms. Very , very helpful and supportive when i almost fainted, biscuits and a nice lie down! Thanks

I have been registered here and the previous location in Darnley Road for well over 40+ years and never had a problem. The only real problem I have experienced is how some patients speak to the staff, it's disgusting. The NHS operates on the budget that the government sets, it is not the fair to blame the staff of this shortcoming. If you not satisfied, go private.

Dr S Pillarisetti

48 Lower Higham Rd, Gravesend DA12 2NG, UK – 01474 564575

You can't ever get through on the phone, then when you do it's only to find that all appointments are gone. You can go early in the morning to try and make one. Then you go in the mornings and you sit around well beyond your "appointmemt time"...completely ridiculous system if you happen to be employed. Doctors are good if you ever get to see one though so 3* instead of 1*.

The Shrubbery Surgery

65a Perry St, Northfleet, Gravesend DA11 8RD, UK – 01474 356661

Of course ringing in to get an appointment is never a fun experience but, they don't leave your call ringing for 10 minutes (much like other places I've been). Friendly staff, well trained doctors who keep you informed on what they think is the problem. Been going here for a while and have seen many different doctors with no complaints.

I get prescription from there for my brother Adam

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

St George's Church

Church St, Gravesend DA11 0DJ, UK – 01474 534965

Warm and friendly family orientated Church. Variety of services available from traditional communion to family services and informal worship. Children and young people are actively encouraged to participate in services and church life. Throughout the week there are two sessions of Noah's Ark for pre school children and their carers on Monday. Cool Tots in Church on Thursday morning. JAM Club on Sundays and once a month Who Let the Dad's Out, giving an opportunity for the men to get together while the children play in a safe fun environment. There's something for everyone here in the church family!

The exterior is a nice quaint English church, inside is a working church with a lot of facilities and services for families and children. But most people visiting here as tourists will come to pay respects as it is the resting place of Pocahontas, born Matoaka, 1596–1617, a native American who was kidnapped and held for ransom by the English. As such this church has a lot of potential as a historical attraction in it's own right, but remains firmly a working church.

Christ Church Milton-Next-Gravesend

10 Park Ave, Gravesend DA12 1NS, UK – 01474 352643

A lovely morning spent in the Grounds adjacent to the church. Sitting in front of the pond taking in the natural surroundings. Only downside you could hear the traffic but still a very pleasant morning.

We are fortunate enough to have this as our local parish church. It really is at the heart of the community. Friendly and welcoming to everyone. A beautiful church.It reaches out to everyone.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Gravesend

Kohinoor Restaurant

60 Istead Rise, Gravesend DA13 9JF, UK – 01474 833247

Ive been to this restaurant loads of the years and I've never had a bad meal. Great Authentic Indian food. Great staff and nice cold lager. What more could you want!

Extensive menu to suit all tastes. Hot and spicey or mild and tasty. Not a large restaurant but will cater for parties. Staff friendly and helpful.

Singh's Pure Vegetarian & Vegan Indian Restaurant

151 Milton Rd, Gravesend DA12 2RG, UK – 01474 247750

We visited this restaurant tonight as we had some vegan friends to stay and were impressed, not only by the extensive menu, but by the friendly and polite service we received. The mango lassi was absolutely sensational, as was all the food - the garlic and corriander nann bread was the best I've had in years! And to top it off, it was all so reasonably priced! We will definitely be returning - even though we're neither vegan nor vegetarian!

Pure Indian vegetarian food as you love. Highly recommended. Friendly service.

Sukhothai Restaurant

6 Windmill St, Gravesend DA12 1AD, UK – 01474 328123

Fantastic authentic Thai food with friendly service. The food was lovely. I had chicken panang curry and pad thai, both of which were delicious. My partner had duck fillet which was cooked to perfection. We visited on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was full, so I'd recommend booking in advance. The only down side is that they only take cash which is a pain in this day and age.

I really enjoyed the food. The veg was freshly cooked and had a good crunch. We had the red and green curry and both had great flavour.

So glad we chose this school for my daughter.She has flourished since she joined last year. The teachers are very encouraging and she is so happy there. The fact that it is one the best performing schools in the country makes it best choice all round. Couldn't ask for any more than that!

Public & Preparatory Schools

Saint Josephs Preparatory School

46 Old Rd E, Gravesend DA12 1NR, UK – 01474 533012

My kids have loved it here and I personally cannot recommend it enough. The quality of education, pupil wellbeing and community feeling are all key attributes to this school's excellance. Teachers are approachable and always happy to discuss any matters that may arise with you. They work hard to ensure pupils receive the best education and that is reflected in the high academic attainment of the pupils.

Moved both our children to this school 2 terms ago and can honestly that there attitude to learning has really improved. They've already had day trips out of school which they've really enjoyed. We really believe in developing our kids as a whole, St Joseph's are fulling this extremely well. It is unfortunate that ofsted has not recognised many of the schools strengths. It is very obvious that the school has taken things seriously and is working hard to implement the ofted requirements!
