Restoration House is a unique survival of a city mansion, and represents the  aggrandisement of several medieval buildings to create by 1667, in the words of Samuel Pepys, the ‘pretty seat of Sir Francis Clerke’ .
Situated in the heart of historic Rochester (England) the house takes its name from the stay of King Charles II on the eve of the Restoration. 
It is also the Satis House of Dickens’ “Great Expectations”, the home of Miss Havisham.
