About Medway

Medway is the largest conurbation in the south east outside London, with a population of around 280,000 which is projected to grow to 330,000 by 2035 as part of our aspiration to become a leading waterfront university city. Medway is strategically positioned between the Capital and the Continent, and our fast train connections provide services to London within 34 minutes.

Medway has a rich heritage and great future. 

We are proud to be home to four universities with 12,000 students, with thriving further education, MidKent College and University Technical College. 

Medway is one of the leading centres for innovation in the south east. Medway’s economy is now worth £5.2bn with a growth rate ahead of the rest of the UK.
