Rochester is a unique destination. A famous local was Charles Dickens.

Rochester inspired his literary works and, today, visitors can follow in his footsteps and marvel at the area’s medieval architecture, its historic cathedral, and with a Dickensian twist!

Here’s your opportunity to add something different to your visit to England so many still miss.

This tour can be delivered as a day tour on its own, (as listed); or please enquire if you wish to add to an overall day trip with another destination in Kent.
