If you have not started Christmas shopping already, then it can begin at Medway Council’s Christmas Market situated in the historic grounds and gardens of lovely Rochester Castle, on 1st, 2nd and 6th to 9th December. With no less than 70 festively illuminated market stalls, located beneath canvas marquees, there is plenty to choose from and ideas in abundance.

Visitors will be offered festive gifts and novelty stocking fillers. You can admire the stunningly decorated Christmas tree and enjoy the traditional family fun fair in the Castle Gardens during market days, accompanied by live entertainment and music. Hungry tummies can be filled by the delicious hog roast, roasted chestnuts and lashings of hot chocolate.

The market is open from 11.00 am to 6.15 pm on the stated dates and entry is free of charge. For more information, go to: www.whatsonmedway.co.uk
