Add Rochester Cathedral to your Itinerary

Rochester Cathedral
Rochester Cathedral was consecrated in AD604 and the present building initiated by Bishop Gundulf in 1080. The architecture is Norman, Gothic and Early-English Perpendicular with a fine crypt, medieval wall paintings and a magnificent 15th century chapter room doorway.

Rochester Cathedral is the second oldest in England. As you wander around this beautiful and spiritual cathedral you will see a fine collection of medieval wall paintings and the first genuine fresco to be painted in an English cathedral for nearly 800 years.

The cathedral’s ancient history is brought to life via new interactive exhibits, revealing the untold stories of its ancient stones. Visitors can now explore the cathedral using new leaflets, translated in several languages.

Interpretation panels at key locations compliment this by giving a broad overview of the historic site. Audio tours (available in several languages) with visual presentations projected on cathedral walls as you take the tour. For a broad and engaging tour, take a stroll with musician Jools Holland as he narrates. For the younger audience let Egburga Eagle show you around as she swoops in and out of the cathedral rafters or for a more relaxing and spiritual experience take the reflective tour.
