Dartford Rundown

Dartford in Kent is situated 20 miles to the east of London on the bank of the river Thames. Originally a Roman settlement, the old market town is famous for the Dartford Tunnel and the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge, as well as being next door to one of the UK’s biggest Shopping Centres, Bluewater. Dartford is also where rock n’ roll legends Mick n’ Keef grew up – they both went to Dartford Grammar School, and today Dartford’s Mick Jagger Centre For Music and the Arts helps up and coming local talent. ...
