Counting Down to Christmas in Medway
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! What could be more festive than visiting Rochester's Dickensian Christmas Festival and Christmas market, supping on mulled wine, listening to Christmas music, admiring the Christmas lights, browsing the market stalls and independent High Street shops for gifts or heading to the panto or a carol service?
The Times Newspaper has just named Dickensian Christmas and the Rochester Christmas Market one of the UK's Best Family-Friendly Christmas Days out!

Welcome to Medway
There’s no arguing that Rochester’s magnificent cathedral and imposing castle that dominate the Medway skyline are impressive examples of Norman architecture and are on the must-see list when exploring the area. But are you aware of the number of family attractions, our thriving cultural scene, the breath-taking natural landscapes, and the adventures you can have both on and off the water?
Medway is jam-packed full of things to do that are beyond the ordinary. There’s animal adventures, beautiful country strolls, riverside dining, electric go-karting, outdoor theatre, speed boating along the estuary, and a whole host of creative festivals. You can even go champing – that’s glamping in churches!
