Gillingham is quaint town in Kent in the South East of England with much to offer. The name Gillingham literally means 'the homestead of Gylla's family' in Old English. Gyllingas was a medieval warlord and was famous for leading his warriors into battle screaming and shouting - these days, though, Gillingham is a peaceful place with much to offer for those who live there.
