Experience England’s second oldest cathedral, Rochester Cathedral, built by the Anglo-Saxons in 604 CE. It blends many architectural styles, including Norman and Gothic, with finely detailed Romanesque facades. Join a service, listen to the choir, or just visit the cathedral on your own for its historical significance. Pick up a memento at the gift shop or stop for a snack at their tearooms and gardens, where all proceeds go to maintaining the building. Take some photos when not in service, and make sure to book a guided tour in advance. See Rochester Cathedral and all Rochester has to offer by arranging your trip with our Rochester sightseeing planner.

Popped in to play golf, ( crazy golf of the bridges around and being supported in history teachings by the church of Rochester ) good move . Well the Cathedral is beautiful, never been in their before. The people seem to be welcoming , Hope you didn't miss the golf for the community , catch the nice venture if you can , oh my score was +28 not the best I know, but it's a great competitive score for others as its beatable no? Give it a go 😉👍👍🏾
Fantastic place to visit. Staff really helpful and knowledgeable. The Knife Angel is there at the moment, what an impressive and moving piece of art. Definitely something that everyone should see. The crypt is full of the photos of knife victims. Very sad but if it saves lives it has got to be worth it.
