The City of Rochester Society open ‘drop by and go’ walks happen every Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Bank Holiday from Good Friday to the end of October. We also run open tours during the ‘Kent Big Weekend’, the Rochester Christmas Market weekends and the summer & winter Dickens Festivals.
Open walking tours depart from the Visitor Information Centre at 95 High Street Rochester at 2.15pm. These tours last approximately 90 minutes.
In addition to the afternoon walks, we run a 10.45am walk everyday during the Rochester Dickens Festivals, both summer and winter, and during the Sweeps festival. This walk takes approximately 45 minutes.
All these walks are free of charge but we welcome donations.
Rochester city centre is relatively accessible and wheelchair users are welcome to join a tour.
We’ve received some amazing testimonials on recent tours;
