Coach travel to Rochester Christmas Market & Dickensian Weekend

Set in the historic and picturesque Rochester Castle gardens, overlooked by Rochester's 12th Century Norman Keep, passengers will enjoy a selection of festive foods including mulled wine, hot chocolate with Baileys and roasted chestnuts as they browse stalls for unique gift ideas and unusual stocking fillers at the Christmas Market. At the same time there are lamp-lit parades, carols to be sung, Father Christmas to be met and even a guaranteed snowfall, framed by Rochester’s fairytale cathedral and castle. You’ll also see some familiar, fabled characters from Dickens’ much-loved stories.

Highlights include the Seven Poor Travellers Procession, the Grand Parade, a candlelit procession, the open air carol concert, and street performers.

Rochester’s Dickensian Christmas has been held annually since 1988, which is fitting as Medway held such a special place in Charles Dickens’ life and work. The writer spent five of his childhood years in Medway from 1817 to 1822. He returned for the last few years of his life, dying at Gads Hill in 1870.

Travel in style with to this popular Kent event on a guaranteed seat on one of our super comfy coaches.
