Description:
Between Elizabethan times and World War II, Six Poor Travellers House offered board and lodging to six travellers for one night – as set out in the terms of Richard Watts will of 1579.

It’s now been fully restored and visitors to the house, located in Rochester, can explore its narrow corridors and tiny rooms.

Outside, there is an enchanting herb garden, offering timeworn advice on the medicinal benefits of herbs.

This is also the house of Charles Dickens’ well-known and well-loved short story, The Seven Poor Travellers – the narrator was the seventh traveller.
