Visit to Rochester
Tuesday 19 September 2017


Image result for rochester walks







Rochester is a very ancient Town and has many buildings and historic associations, the cathedral, castle and Dickens amongst them, to be explored.  It is reasonably flat and compact and so is ideal for a walk.

The trip to Rochester has now been confirmed for Tuesday 19th September and is nearly full, so if you want to join please be quick!


·       £17  per person

·       Leaving Lower Shott at 9:00am

·       Returning from Rochester at 4:00pm

·       Included in the price is a guided walk led by a member of their local history society.


The walk around the Town starts at the High Street, down the Esplanade, through the Cathedral Precinct, by Eastgate House, Dicken’s Chalet and back to the High Street and takes around one and a half hours.  There are many places to eat and drink or you can bring your own picnic. Guided tours are not allowed in the Cathedral so that is one place that you can visit on your own as there will be plenty of time to look around.


If you have expressed an interest in this trip please complete the booking form (all the details are required including an emergency contact number) and a cheque (made out to Bookham and District U3A) or cash for the appropriate amount and either bring it to the April Tuesday afternoon meeting or send it Anne Glyn (details on the booking form).  Only when you have your receipt is your place confirmed.  Anne will have spare copies of the booking form at the meeting but please make sure you have all the details (and your cheque book).
