Rochester Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Rochester?
Rochester is very important in the history of the Roman conquest of Britain and it’s believed that the Roman army may have landed there. Certainly Rochester Castle was first constructed as a base for the newly landed army. It was loved by Charles Dickens who set many of his stories in the region and town and he lived there for many years of his life. It has a monumental cathedral and fine Norman Castle and today is an important town in providing services in the Medway area.


How do I get to Rochester?
The nearest main airport to Rochester is either Gatwick Airport, around an hour away or London City Airport, the same distance north west of the town. Both have a wide range of international destinations whilst Gatwick has a much wider range due to its position as Britain’s second airport. Rail travel from both is possible through London stations and car hire is widely available in the town if you decide to arrive by public transport.

What Should I do or see in Rochester?
Rochester’s pride is its wonderful and imposing cathedral as well as its equally imposing Norman castle built over the site of the Roman Castrum. Gads Hill Place in the Higham neighbourhood is well known as the home of Charles Dickens who lived in the town and wrote many of his books there, setting them in and around Rochester. It’s possible to see the house but not enter it but there is a Charles Dickens Museum for those that want to find out more about his life there.
