This is the first of four posts I'll be doing about places I visited on my holiday this year.
Rochester Castle, unsurprisingly, is located in the Kentish town of Rochester. It stands next to
the River Medway which flows from London to Dover.
The first Castle on the site was a Norman one but was rebuilt to the one still standing there in 1127 during the reign of Henry I.
The Castle later became a hub for the growth of a town.
Over the road from Rochester Castle you can see Rochester Cathedral, this led to some interesting shots!
If you're in the area and you like a bit of history the castle's well worth a visit, it's not expensive to get in and there's a wealth of information available to see as you're walking round.
Not only this but it is very easy to access using public transport as well as car, at least I assume car is easy, but neither my boyfriend or I can drive and it was a 2 minute walk from the bus stop.
Don't expect to spend a long time looking round the castle however, it took us about an hour and we stopped and read all the signs and went up and down all the stairs... and I happen to freak out a little going down stairs.
On the other hand the castle grounds are free to get into and you can have a picnic there!
