Rochester Cathedral | Rochester, Kent

Pay a visit to Rochester Cathedral, a place of Christian worship since 604 AD. Located in the heart of Rochester's busy high street and just a five-minute walk from the train station, this beautiful landmark is the perfect place to spend a free afternoon.

The impressive architecture is worth the visit itself, but make sure you take your visit inside the cathedral as well. Featured in Dickens' The Mystery of Edwin Drood, the cathedral beautifully captures the essence of the middle ages.

Amongst the historical, architectural and spiritual significance of the building, the cathedral's gardens are a must-visit as well. Build on the south-side of the cathedral to optimise light and warmth from the sun, the gardens are a perfect place to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

Entrance to the museum is free, but if you can spare a small donation it will be appreciated. Enjoy your trip!
