Why move to a new build home in Rochester?

Home to centuries-old architecture and the inspiration of several Charles Dickens works, Rochester is a self-contained gem made even more attractive by rail links to London in under an hour.


The Rochester Guildhall Museum is the perfect spot to explore Rochester's Dickensian links – itself having served as inspiration for a setting in Great Expectations.

Rochester Castle has stood for almost a millennium, while its Cathedral has been a site of worship for even longer. Both make great stop-off points on a walking tour of the area's rich history.

Back in the here and now, Rochester has a thriving foodie scene with everything from Italian and Indian options to American-style barbecue and Turkish treats. When you move to one of our new homes for sale in Rochester, you certainly won't go hungry.


Rochester and the surrounding area have dozens of schools with a 'Good' or 'Outstanding' Ofsted rating

Canterbury Christ Church University, the University of Kent, and the University of Greenwich all have campuses in Chatham, while the University for the Creative Arts is based in Rochester and counts artist Tracey Emin and actress Rose Ayling-Ellis among its famous alumni.


Commuters have plenty of options into London with over 200 services running into the capital each day, including direct trains to Victoria, St Pancras, and Blackfriars – some in as little as 36 minutes.

The M2 motorway runs to the west of the town, providing routes into south-east London and towards Canterbury and Dover in the opposite direction. Local bus operators provide travel around Rochester and to surrounding Medway towns such as Chatham and Strood.
