It was quite by chance that we stayed in Rochester. We were travelling to Belgium and to break up the journey we had booked a hotel room here in Rochester.

Not having been here before we decided to get here ealier and have a look around and it was well worth the visit.

Rochester is a city in the County of Kent and is situated 20 miles south east of London. It has grown from a small saxon village to a large city.

The Norman Castle is over 900 years old and the Cathedral is the second oldest in the country. Also the author Charles Dickens lived here for many years.
