Rochester Cathedral Pilgrimage

Saturday 27th July

Experience a spiritual moment in Rochester Cathedral and visit a spectacular church that has been celebrating Christian worship since 604AD. The history and heritage of Rochester Cathedral is boasted in its stunning architecture. Its walls hum with the prayer of thousands of years. It is the spiritual home of Rochester and one that shouldn’t be missed. Walk through the pages of history in this beautiful building.


Rochester Cathedral is England’s second oldest, founded by Bishop Justus. The present building dates back to the work of the French monk Bishop Gundulf in 1083. The glorious Norman architecture of the nave, parts of the crypt, as well as one of the finest Romanesque facades in England.

The Cathedral is blessed with some fine examples of later Gothic styles as well as the magnificent 14th century Chapter Library door. Hidden from view (although it can be viewed by special appointment) is one of the oldest doors in England.

We will leave from St George’ the Martyr on Saturday 27th July. All St Paul’s places have now been filled. See Akin for updates in case there are spare tickets.
