Churches & Cathedrals


Garth House, The Precinct, Rochester, Kent, ME1 1SZ

Rochester Cathedral was founded in 604 and is the second oldest in England. The current building is largely Norman from the 11th century, extended in the 14th century.

Outstanding features are the West front and the library door, with beautiful medieval carvings, and the massive Norman pillars in the Nave, with characteristic chevron carving.

There are also medieval wall paintings, including a well preserved 'Wheel of Fortune'.

Entry is FREE and the Cathedral is open every day. Photo: David Robinson
