A truly outstanding opportunity!

A most attractive and prominent building situated on the north-eastern side of the High Street, not far from The Esplanade, Rochester Bridge, and the recently relocated mainline railway station with its high speed services to London (about 40 minutes).

This is a Listed building within the historic Rochester Conservation Area and was built in 1909, originally used as offices for the Medway Conservancy Board. In the 1980s it became part of the adjoining Guildhall Museum.

Befitting the building’s historic past and purpose, there are many attractive and ornate features within the building and it is considered that there are a variety of potential future uses for the property, subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable.
