Residents and visitors are invited to learn more about Medway’s rich heritage at Eastgate House and the Guildhall Museum.

Look back along Rochester High Street

Visitors to Eastgate House can view a selection of photographs which showcase the changing face of Rochester High Street from the early 1900s to the 1970s. The ‘Looking back along Rochester High Street’ exhibition has been produced in partnership with Medway Archives Centre. Eastgate House is open from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm. Last admission is at 4.15pm. The exhibition will be on display until 7 July. Free entry, with admission to Eastgate House.

Legacy and Legend

Discover more about the Knights Templar at the Legacy and Legend exhibition at The Guildhall Museum, High Street, Rochester. The story of the Knights Templar is shrouded in mystery. Today they still present a powerful image of the Middle Ages – warrior knights with their distinctive white tunics emblazoned with a red cross. But how much do we know about the history of the mysterious Knights Templar? This free exhibition will shed a little light on the known facts, as well as bring their story home to Medway. The exhibition will be on display until December, on Tuesdays to Sundays, 10am to 5pm.

‘Fascinating insight into Medway’s rich heritage’

Cllr Howard Doe, Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Services, said: “We organise a variety of exhibitions each year which provide a fascinating insight into Medway’s rich heritage. I would encourage residents and visitors to view the exhibitions and discover more about our past.”
