Hempstead Valley is a popular, out of town shopping centre, located on the edge of the Medway Towns (population of 254,000) in Kent. It is only a couple of minutes from the M2 motorway, half way between London and Dover. The centre was the first out of town shopping centre to be built in the south east. It was a pioneer of the 'commercialisation' of mall space, with RMU's being a feature of the centre when it fully opened in June 1979.
