This ancient cathedral city has attracted Norman's, Roman's, pilgrims and kings and queens over the centuries and has inspired some of the greatest men in history.
My interest is Charles Dickens who spent his final years near Rochester. Many of the historic buildings in Rochester today were an inspiration to him.
So having visited first the castle and then the cathedral
we are now walking down the High Street
Eastgate House built 1590 is steeped in history. During the late 1700's it was used as a young ladies' boarding school. It was also associated with Charles Dickens and featured in The Pickwick Papers and his unfinished novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood
