Had a day trip down to Rochester to visit the castle and cathedral on a very hot bank holiday Monday.... and got a complete folk festival thrown in for free ... what are the odds!
Apparently Rochester has a folk festival every year, called the Sweeps Festival.
The castle, built in 1066 by someone called Norman, (am I missing something? ) is a great example of history that can be touched and smelt, but not tasted, thats just disgusting...
£5.80 adult entrance. Small gift shop. Lots of steps...did I mention LOTS of steps. Great views of the Cathedral, river, surrounding hills etc.
Learn some history. It really is a lot of fun!
