The Rochester Castle is a majestic medieval castle located in the county of Kent, in the south-east of England. Despite the fact that it was rebuilt several times, the castle retained the image obtained in the XII century and is an excellent example of Norman architecture in the UK. The massive dungeon dominating the castle is considered one of the best preserved medieval monuments of England.
The picturesque fortress inspired the writer Charles Dickens and the painter William Turner. Today, the Rochester Castle has been restored and is under the protection of the state organization 'English Heritage'. It has the status of an architectural monument of high importance and is very popular with tourists. Previously, the first floor of the ancient fort was used for storage. On the second floor lived the commandant of the fortress, whose duties included keeping an eye on the buildings in the absence of the owner, and the third floor was intended for the owner and his retinue. It housed a chapel and the most spacious rooms of the castle, the ceiling height in which exceeded 8 m. Around the castle fragments of powerful fortress walls were preserved.
For tourists, the territory and halls of the castle are open on any day, except Monday.
