Medway certainly had a magical Christmas experience at the 2013 Rochester Christmas Market. Set against the picturesque Rochester Castle - unique gift ideas sat alongside value goodies and stocking fillers; as well as a range of tasty Christmas treats. And of course Santa made a special trip to visit his Rochester grotto - so everyone was able to get into the Christmas spirit early.

Visitors to Rochester over the market's weekends were also able to enjoy the Farmers' Market and more traditional Craft Fair. Even more luxury and unique Christmas stalls are expected for 2014 so watch this space for more details.

Visitors can find out where to park in Medway online too.

Enjoy a hog roast, hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts as you browse the wide range of stalls for those last minute gifts. Then step back in time to a Victorian Christmas and meet some of Dickens' heroes and villains under our guaranteed snowfall at the Rochester Dickensian Christmas on the second market weekend.
