Amazing place. The high street is bustling with great shops, the castle is great, the castle gardens and surrounding area is nice too. Just don’t stay out late after hours because you might face the rowdy drunks - don’t really see that as a negative because that’s pretty much all across the UK.
I like Rochester Castle. I have known about the castle since I was a boy. I move here about 5 years ago and I visited the castle. I like the castle grounds and the view of the river. A good place to take the family. Plenty of space to sit on the grass and for the children to run around. If you can afford to enter the castle (I think the prices are a little high), do so. Getting to the top is an adventure in its self!! The views from the top are incredible, make sure you have your phone or a camera, you will want to take pictures!!!
