Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

The Vines is situated in a lovely location in Rochester I would recommend a visit to relax but the last time I was there with my partner we was hassled by the loacal drunks even though it is a alcohol free zone ! Just be careful

The Vines is a beautiful small Park sandwiched between the Kings School and Cathedral precinct. Its a perfect space to find a little Peace and Quiet by simply walking up Crow Lane away from bustling Rochester High Street

Always a tranquil oasis behind the High St, The Vines is getting a face lift by the locals with planting for Spring etc. Sadly, each day the litter has to be cleared away after groups use the park for picnics, get togethers etc even though bins are just a few feet away. The local authorities keep everything tidy but if the users were a bit more caring it would be pristine all the time.

The Vines Park is a small green oasis on the site of a medieval vineyard where monks from Rochester Cathedral (right next door), once grew grapes for their wine.
Take a walk around the perimiter and see a monk statue lying on the floor sculptured from one of the fallen trees, also look out for the plaques on the wall.
The park joins up The Vines to Crow Lane (where Restoration house is).

If you've found restoration house, it is certainly worth it to cross the street to read about this park and take a short stroll. Lovely views down toward the cathedral at the far end as well.
