Trains to Rochester

Trains to Rochester chug into town along the banks of the River Medway, with the enchanting Norman castle towering over the waters and the spires of Rochester Cathedral - the second oldest in England - gradually coming into view. Historic buildings are what Rochester does best, and the town's Charles Dickens connections have helped it maintain its architectural heritage; look out for the Elizabethan Eastgate House, which features in The Pickwick Papers and now houses a Dickens museum. The annual Dickens Festival is also a major tourist attraction. Rochester station dates back to 1892, and takes commuters west to London Victoria, Charing Cross and St Pancras International, as well as connecting to Kent destinations like Canterbury, Ramsgate and Gillingham. The shops and bars along bustling Eastgate, are less than five minutes' walk from the station (turn right out of the forecourt). Keep going up Eastgate to reach the cathedral, castle and the Guildhall Museum.

Station details & facilities

The station has two entrances. Both lead into the concourse, which connects to a subway with steps and lifts to all four platforms, plus some extra ticket machines - handy if the ticket office is busy. Toilets and customer services are found on platform 1. There is a car park with cycle storage and lockers at the front of the building. Most trains to London depart from platform 3, with trains heading east into Kent departing from platform 2.
