At Thamesgate, we are proud of the variety we bring to Gravesend shoppers, with a terrific range of shops providing great value to the town.

Looking to make an impression? A variety of products to make you stand out, including sharp looking gloves, hats and scarves, as well as men’s and women’s fragrances are available at Nina’s Promotions. Or at Safia’s Lash, Brow and Beauty, you can pop in for a bit of a pampering session, getting your eyelashes and brows done to ensure you always look the part.

If it’s fresh food you’re running low on, look no further than Ali’s Fruit and Veg. An enormous variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables topped up on a daily basis, keeping you stocked up on healthy local produce.

Gravesend Christmas Lights

With Halloween now behind us, we are looking forward to the Christmas festivities at Thamesgate Shopping Centre. One of the most exciting events in this period for us is the upcoming Gravesham Borough Council Parade, taking place on the 22nd of November. Christmas marks a very special time for us at Thamesgate, with the community and family spirit growing in the build-up. At the shopping centre itself, we have front row seats to see the joy first-hand!

All are welcome to come down and take part, and we encourage you to enjoy the parade taking place to mark the occasion. The event promises to be one of the most exciting in the calendar, with performers walking on stilts, roller skating Santa’s helpers and a Mrs Claus human table, all handing out treats of all types. There will also be face painters and glitter artists to engage with children present. The event will culminate with the switching on of Town Centre’s lights, decorating the streets of Gravesend and launching the festive season in the town.

The Parade will be taking place at 16:30 on the 22nd of November 2019, with the lights being switched on at around 17:15. Please feel free to come down and enjoy the occasion for yourself!

  • Procurement phase for the Eastern Quarter begins: early 2014
  • Eastern Quarter build begins: mid-late 2014
