Day out in Rochester for the Dickens Festival

with one comment

I went to Rochester a couple of weeks back to take in the glories of the Dickens festival. I find it exotic enough just getting out of London period but one thing’s for sure – when half of any town town have dressed up in Victorian costumes for a three day weekend it’s got to be a pretty amazing place.

I was only able to make it for a one day unfortunately but I still had a laugh.

  1. They used to do that every year here in Saltbun. A whole week of people dressed in Victorian costumes and then a big firework display at the end of it!
