Next year is the 350 year anniversary of the attack by the Dutch that destroyed the British armada at anchor on the River Medway .
It’s rumoured that they will be a huge event next year on the river Medway involving events between here and Upnor Castle . There’s meant to be a huge fireworks display to represent the attack .
If you are planning a visit next year then I’d arrange it around the anniversary date , book early while accommodation is still cheap (there is a page on my blog dedicated to local accommodation) . There’s plenty of areas where you will get a good view.
There’s an account in William Pepys diary for that day Here
