Coming by car

Car parking

There is free on-street parking in front of the shop (limited to a maximum  of 1 hour).  If you have a blue badge you can also park right outside the shop for a limitless time, or on the single yellow lines in front of the bank (one car length along only, not within 10 metres of the junction) for up to 3 hours.  Lidl’s car park is also handy – it’s for their customers only and is time limited, so you can use it if you combine your visit with shopping in Lidl’s.

Coming by public transport

Train

Gillingham is on the South Western Railway line from London Waterloo to Exeter. The shop is about quarter of a mile from the station.
