OverviewDoStayEatShopBusiness

Rochester, one of Kentís Medway towns, is blessed with a castle and a cathedral, as well an impressive choice of antique shops, making this an ideal location for history lovers. Charles Dickens particularly enjoyed visiting Rochester and based many of his novels in the area. As a result, the town has adopted a very Dickensian feel, celebrating each year with a Summer Dickens Festival and a Dickensian Christmas Festival. Anyone looking for unique restaurants and boutiques will also be in for a treat.
