Tours to Rochester
In 43 AD Romans came to Rochester, building a fortress and a bridge over Medway, as one of the most important cities in Rochester. Rochester built its first stone castle on the remains of the ancient Roman fort in 1088 after the Norman invasion.
At every turn, Rochester sends the story to the cobbled streets and terraces, from the old monuments that dominate its skyline, to the Georgian and Victorian houses. It is a real tourist destination like Canterbury and people from all over the world, especially during the popular annual festivals, it’s worth visiting. Among the major attractions are Rochester Castle, which is always popular with young families and offers fabulous views from the top of the gate and opposite the Rochester Cathedral.
Rochester was a place for living, working and visiting in the 21st century. Some of the traditional old shops and tea rooms are replaced by trendy shops and coffee shops, and the place offers a state- of- the- art feeling.
