This was the second time I had been here, and as I had enjoyed it before, I took a second look. The displays are small, but cover the material well, the history of the building and it's services are fascinating, and there is a lovely little courtyard garden at the back.
Lovely old house that was opened and became the first Charity. Not to say too much but worth a little visit when in the Rochester area. Small donations (optional) welcome for the upkeep. Open Tuesday to Sunday in the high season. Not sure outside that. Great to see inside the hose and out in the garden.
This is an amazing little place, right on the street and full of information about the benevolent providers of 17th Century charity to the poor of Rochester. it has small dark rooms and would not be accessible for someone of limited mobility but is otherwise really good at opening up the nature of life in the town 500 years ago.... 更多
We have visited Rochester many times before, but this was our first visit to what was a very interesting place. The House is very small, but was free to see and a nice way to spend half an hour.

Look out for this house along Rochester high street. It is full of the history of the house and contains lots of information. Don't miss the 2 rooms outside in the garden.
It is wonderful that because of the charity of this man so long ago travellers can still find peace and beauty in this place. The volunteer when we visited was very welcoming and knowledgeable. There were fledgling birds in the gardens which made it extra special.
Travel back in time, discover how life was, spend time wandering the rooms reading and exploring artifacts. Can get busy as entrance is free. Helpful staff.
This is right in the middle of Rochester and featured in a short story by Charles Dickens. It gives one an insight into the place pilgrims and other travellers were given hospitality when making their way through Kent.
