The 12th-century keep or stone tower, which is the castle’s most prominent feature, is one of the best preserved in England or France.
Strategically placed astride the London Road, guarding an important crossing of the River Medway, this imposing fortress has a complex history of destruction and rebuilding. Today it stands as a proud reminder of the history of Rochester along with the cathedral and cobbled streets. #
Open 10am to 6pm April to September and 10am to 4pm October to March.
Last admission 45 minutes before closing.
