Rochester’s attractions:

  • Castle
  • Cathedral
  • Dickens Christmas Festival or Sweeps Festival





The city of Rochester has strong connections with the writer, Charles Dickens, and at Christmas there is a Dickensian Christmas festival with people dressed as characters from his novels walking around the city and acting out scenes of life. In the evening there will be a candle-lit procession down the High Street in Rochester. During the first May bank holiday weekend the Sweeps festival is a show of traditiional Morris dancing, which remembers the annual holiday for the people who cleaned chimneys.
