Why buy a new build home in Rochester?

Rochester is steeped in rich history, boasting stunning architecture, and it was the inspiration behind many of Charles Dickens' novels. Nowadays, this quirky Kent hotspot offers superb local amenities and is a popular location for commuters.


Take a trip to Rochester Castle to admire a breath-taking piece of Norman Romanesque architecture. The castle walls hold a fascinating history, which dates to the 1120s. In the modern day 2020s, you'll find open-air theatre and cinema during the summer months, which makes for a great family trip out.

The Rochester Guildhall Museum holds an array of exhibitions and displays, including archaeological objects and paintings, plus a discovery room dedicated to former Rochester resident, Charles Dickens.

Rochester's high street is lined with beautiful Tudor houses and cottages, alongside family-run pubs, vintage clothing stores, independent boutiques, and gift shops. You'll also find Rochester Cathedral, which is a tribute to the transition between the Norman and Early English Gothic era.


Children have plenty of access to quality education when you move into your new home in Rochester, as the majority of primary and secondary schools have received a 'Good' or 'Outstanding' rating by Ofsted.

For further education, there are three universities which have campuses in Chatham – just a five-minute drive away. These are the University of Kent, University of Greenwich, and Canterbury Christ Church University
