      ROCHESTER HISTORY WALKING TOURS Whether you’re coming for a once-in-a-lifetime visit, or you’re a local and would like to know more about the town you call home, an entertaining walking tour with one of our knowledgeable guides is a great way of getting a real flavour of one of Britain’s most historic towns!  CASTLE AND CATHEDRAL PRECINCT TOUR Covering everything from... the earliest origins of Rochester, the Roman occupation, the unique Norman Castle Keep – and what King John did to it!, the Cathedral and its’ hidden secret, the World famous actress who grew up in the shadow of the Cathedral (no, not Kelly Brook!), how ‘swift justice’ was dispensed in the Middle Ages, the 16th Century philanthropist whose legacy has provided homes for hundreds of Rochester pensioners and ... two of the most gruesome executions in the history of England!  And you thought Rochester was BORING????  DURATION OF TOUR – 2-2.5 hours + refreshment break in one of the oldest pubs in Britain  WHAT’S THE COST? All our guided walking tours are offered on a DONATION-ONLY basis. We believe NO ONE should be prevented from learning due to cost. In the case of Rochester, that can be up to £17 for a ticket to a guided walk. For some people, £1 is a lot of money. For that reason we leave the cost entirely to your discretion.   WHERE TO FIND OUR GUIDE - Meet your guide by the ‘Welcome to Rochester Castle’ sign board, by the Boley Hill car park, opposite the rear of Ye Arrow public house. Your guide will be holding a yellow meeting board showing ‘RHWT TOUR GUIDE’ so you can recognise them.   START TIME – Please read the listing CAREFULLY for start time. We vary start times to allow as many people as possible to join us.   PLEASE NOTE - Children are welcome on all our tours, but parents should note that some of the content of the tour may not be suitable for the under 11’s as history can be a brutal thing, and there are very few places to sit along the routes, so children will be on their feet for the whole duration of the tour.   For updates to your booking and telephone contact details for your guide, please email us at: rochesterhistorywalkingtours@gmail.com
