A SIDEWAYS GLANCE
It is far far too easy to walk through Rochester with a head crammed full of pressing demands, chores and deadlines and to take the extraordinary delights of our glorious city for granted, or to miss out on some of the quirkier delights nestling within it.
This year’s calendar celebrates the less familiar – either those somewhat secretive nooks, crannies and corners which lie just off the beaten track and deserve a closer look, or fresh takes on the classic sites (and sights) that we know so well.
The City of Rochester Society tries never to take the city for granted, and continues to promote interest in and care for the beauty, history, culture and character of Rochester. Our indefatigable team of guides offer a wide range of opportunities to explore the city and its surrounds on foot: a healthy, carbon-neutral and sociable way of expanding your local knowledge.
