We have been visiting Rochester Castle since we were Kids as we are both from the Medway Towns. We have lived in Australia since 1976 and we were on a visit to the UK this year so Rochester Castle was a must do. This Castle was built by William the Conqueror and is over 900 years old. It is very well preserved and visitors are able to climb the stairs to the Battlements of the Keep. Some of the Foundations of the Castle Walls were built in Roman times. Definitely worth a visit.

The old walled garden at Restoration House is a hidden gem; it includes a immaculate lawn and partarre, a pretty pond and water course, paths lead through old walls and steps to a greenhouse with geraniums and echiums, and a vegetable garden with espalliered fruit trees. You can climb up a tower and get a wonderful view of the house and gardens, and see what looks like a very large new exciting landscaping project under construction on a lower level. Theres also a small tea room in lovely.

Grade 1 is usually reserved for castles and cathedrals, but this 16th century house has this special listing. Now towards the end of a substantial renovation, this is a visit for people who like buildings. Having a guide makes it much easier to trace the development of the house. And it is a help if you can 'take yourself back in time' The authentic light painted panelling is a shock at first until you realise that this colour was used to maximise the light coming into the building. I could go on but this really is worth a visit.
