Fodor's Review

Rochester sponsors a Dickensian Christmas Festival on the first weekend in December. Thousands of people in period dress participate in reenactments of scenes from A Christmas Carol. A candlelight procession, mulled wine and roasted chestnuts, and Christmas carols at the cathedral add to the celebration. There's also a summer festival that takes place in early June. Two other important Dickens festivals take place in Broadstairs, 40 miles east, every June and December.
