The local area
Rochester can point to origins as far back as Neolithic times, while the Celts, Romans and Saxons have all had a presence at one time or another. Charles Dickens also had a strong presence in Rochester, and based a number of his novels on the area. The modern town makes up the Medway unitary authority area along with Chatham, Gillingham, Strood and a collection of neighbouring villages, although it is the presence of a much larger neighbour some 30 miles to the west that will be of most interest to many homebuyers.
Transport links to London are great, with trains available to the capital that take less than 40 minutes, making Rochester a popular commuter town. It is also well placed for the southeast coast of England; popular seaside spots such as Margate are around an hour’s drive from Rochester. The M2 motorway passes to the south and west of town, while the M25 ring road is a short drive away, as are local towns like Sittingbourne, Chatham and Gillingham.
There are some excellent schools in the area for families to take into consideration, with secondary options including Rochester Grammar on Maidstone Road, Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School, and the Thomas Aveling School. Primary choices include the Pilgrim School, Cliffe Woods Primary and Hilltop Primary in Frindsbury.
