Come and discover the town we call home


Rochester has been at the centre of many momentus occasions in British history.  From the arrival of the Romans, through the establishment of Christianity, the Norman invasion, the turbulence of Tudor England, the restoration of the monarchy after the English Civil War, to the town's enduring attachment to CHARLES DICKENS, one of the United Kingdom's greatest literary talents, Rochester has a rich history which shines through in it's architecture and thriving cultural life to the present day.
