What you can expect
Originally a Roman settlement, Rochester is where a 12th century castle with a stone tower, known as a keep, is sited.
Although now in ruin, Rochester Castle is one of the best-preserved, medieval buildings in England.
Overlooking the River Medway, North West Kent, the castle was an important line of defence for centuries, having endured 3 sieges.
Rochester is a destination with a difference. Charles Dickens lived nearby and the once city, it inspired his writing. Today, visitors can walk in his footsteps and admire the town’s medieval and Dickensian architecture. Historic Rochester Cathedral makes it even more special.
Many visitors to England still overlook what this part of England has to offer so here’s your opportunity to experience something different with quaint buildings dotted around the town.
This tour can be experienced on its own, as listed. If you wish to add it to an overall day trip with another destination in Kent, please enquire.
