Brilliant rose garden stain glass windows and ladies chapel. For a very old building great disabled access. And best of all friendly exceptional staff.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Fine cathedral, with a Romanesque/Norman nave and and Gothic Quire and High Altar. Off the track generally beaten by tourists, but a precious little gem waiting to be discovered, and very close to the ruins of Rochester castle, making the visit into Rochester's medieval past complete.
