The castle keep is the highest in England. The castle was designed by Bishop Gundulf, who also designed the White Tower, the central keep in the Tower of London. Rochester's keep is the third largest in England after London and Dover. A statue of Gundulf is on the rood screen immediately to the right of the door from the nave to the chancel of Rochester cathedral.
The massive tree just ouside of the West door of the cathedral is rare in England. It is an American Bean Tree and is reputed to be over 100 years old.
