Holiday Ideas For The Festive Month Of December- Rochester

Rochester is a town and former city in the unitary authority of Med-way in South East England. It is at the lowest bridging point of the River Medway about 30 miles (50 km) from London.

Rochester, Kent has many endless reasons to pay it a visit but one most common is because it was where it all started and where it all ended for the famous author Charles Dickens. 

A Christmas Carol is one of the most loved Christmas stories of all time, and with Rochester being Charles Dickens final resting place, it’s only natural that the city unites to celebrate their festive season with a festival in his honour. With Rochester’s dramatic cathedral, castle and medieval architecture, it becomes a perfect scene for the Charles Dickens Christmas festival. The cold streets are lit up and come alive with performers, markets, pantomimes and artificial snow. Witnessing such an environment is sure to turn the clock back two hundred years, bringing the world of England’s most loved author back to life for a few moments of pleasure.
