There are numerous local attractions in historic Rochester, with the Cathedral, The Castle, The Dickens Centre and The Historic Dockyard. Furthermore, throughout the year there are festivals such as the Sweeps and the Dickens Festivals, which both attract visitors from all over the UK, as well as abroad. Open Air concerts are held in the Castle grounds and they finish with a magnificent firework display over the River Medway.  
• Rochester Castle •

The River Medway is the home for a number of paddle steamers, including the famous 'Rochester Castle'. There is also the Rochester Marina, which is the home for many pleasure craft.

Rochester is renowned for its many Hostelries and Tea Rooms. The Medway Towns also have their share of Theatres, Cinemas and Leisure Centres. However, if you wish to 'pop' up to London, the journey by train takes some 40 minutes and with the M2 only approximately two miles away, London is also easily accessible by car.

Alternatively, you can go East or South and explore the Kent coastal resorts or the beautiful countryside of the aptly named 'Garden of England'.
