I love living in such a historic area! Today was the start of the 2 day Dickensian Christmas Festival in Rochester. I walked there with a friend of mine and her 4 year old daughter. There were quite a few (read thousands!) people there, quite a lot of them in costumes from the time. Sadly, several of the restaurants and pubs on the High Street hadn’t made the necessary precautions for such a busy time.
We went into one place where we managed to get a table only to be told we’d have to wait for about an hour and a half for food and that the staff were so rushed off their feet that they were getting orders wrong. We decided not to stay and walked back over Rochester Bridge to Strood for food there. I wandered home and had aubergine casserole from yesterday while the others went to KFC, a place that I haven’t been to for 6 years thanks to a wheat allergy! How I miss that chicken….
Anyway, if you’re stuck for something to do tomorrow, come to historic Rochester, the festival is definitely worth a visit as is Rochester itself.
