"Rochester, Kent." Rochester by Tricky_Dicky69

Rochester Travel Guide: 78 reviews and 218 photos

I guess that you don't always appreciate what's on your doorstep but tourists come here so there must be some good things about the place.

Tourists can enjoy visiting The Castle, Cathedral and the historic High Street.

Rochester High Street is the venue of The Charles Dickens festival which takes place every year. Lots of people dress up in Dickens costumes and the town is swamped with thousands of tourists from all round the world.

If you're visiting and would like to buy me a beer then get in touch.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Mmmmmmmm not too many.
  • Cons:British weather, etc.
  • In a nutshell:Worth a visit for Dickens fans.

    Since joining VT I have become more aware of what is on my doorstep. Rochester is lovely and so full of history. I love coming here for the afternoon. Any restaurant tips?
