Rochester : Michelin's recommendations


The Romans built Durobrivae to guard the River Medway crossing point. Later, the Normans built a castle here in the 12C. It still dominates the river, cathedral and town, which once had ramparts and is bisected by its High Street. Rochester and the Medway estuary are the setting for several novels by Charles Dickens, to whom the Charles Dickens Centre is dedicated.
