Rochester Dickensian Christmas Market

How about a wander round the Rochester Christmas market to put us in the mood in the run up to Christmas?

Set in the historic and picturesque Rochester Castle gardens, overlooked by Rochester's 12th Century Norman Keep, market visitors 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.

Features of the market include:
* Magical festive atmosphere with live music
* Luxury and unique gifts throughout the market.
* Bavarian Village and Craft Fair.
* Tasty treats from local producers.
* Easy access to historic Rochester High Street with its eclectic mix of independent retailers, eateries and period architecture.
* A step back in time to a Victorian Christmas to meet some of Dickens' heroes and villains (Dickensian Christmas Festival 3-4 December).

    Have made an enquiry , there is a train that leaves Maidstone West at 11.03 and arrives at Strood at 11.26. Strood station is a very short walk from the event did it last year.There are a couple of us going on the train. Last year had a bit of bonus, as walking up there from the station, I passed one of the cafe/bars selling mulled wine outside and grabbed one en route. Hope it is there for a repeat this year!
    See you all on Sunday. x

    FYI - Just a thought, to round off the afternoon, the popular Andy White is playing at The Eagle Tavern on the High St @ 3.30pm .... very worthy of a listen!
    - For the hardy folk, he then follows that with another gig in The Coopers Arms just a couple of hundred yards (along St. Margaret's Street) from the Cathedral/Castle at 7pm - 9pm :)
