The Gullands’ Gravesend office hosted a walking history tour of the town for local business leaders on 28th June, led by local historian Christoph Bull.
Gravesend has a fascinating history which many people may miss if rushing about their daily lives, so taking to the town on foot when the crowds have gone allows you to appreciate the role it has played locally, nationally, and internationally throughout the centuries.
The tour began at Gullands’ offices in Whitehall Place before going to Fort Gardens, Gordon Memorial Gardens, Royal Terrace Pier and the Town Pier, before returning to Whitehall Place.
Partner and head of the Gravesend office Julie Hobson comments: “Christoph has an amazing knowledge of the town and when you slow the pace down and walk through the history, you notice and learn many things that you have missed. I’ve lived in the town all my life and it was great to learn lots more about the town.”
“We are keen to support local businesses in the town and it was great to provide a networking opportunity for them to meet, chat and appreciate the town we all call home.”
