Dating from the 11th century, Rochester Castle overlooking a crossing point on the River Medway, is one of the best preserved in the UK.
The castle, along with others, was built to help the Normans to defend their territory after the conquest of England in 1066. Today, the castle is open to the public and offers sweeping views over Rochester from its battlements.
One highlight of any visit is the 125 feet high keep, which is considered one of the finest in England. The 11th century Rochester Cathedral is located close to the castle, another medieval masterpiece in this charming Kent town.Places nearby:
