Rochester Cathedral, founded in 604, is England’s second oldest Cathedral. With Anglo Saxon origins, impressive Norman architecture, pre-Reformation monastic ruins, and beautiful Victorian refurbishments it has an amazing story to tell. The newly restored medieval crypt houses an exhibition space displaying many of the Cathedral’s hidden treasures including the twelfth century “Textus Roffensis”, the contents of which are said to have influenced Magna Carta.
The Cathedral has a varied and inspiring learning programme suitable for all ages and adaptable to match specific learning objectives. Just a stone’s throw from Rochester Castle and Guildhall Museum, it is ideally located to form part of a Rochester wide day trip.
