The castle at Rochester is perfectly suitable for children, who can run around within Gundalf's walls until they are exhausted. It is possible to navigate your way around each floor as you make your way up to the battlements and is a truly fine example of a Norman keep. On the second floor there is a display on the castle with a reconstruction and the headset tour is also very informative, taking you back over 900 years to the time of the great sieges.
