Acorn Wharf Coach Park

Photo of drivers relaxing at the coach parkJust 300 yards from the drop-off point, the award-winning coach park at Acorn Wharf offers free secure parking for coaches, with on-site toilets.

Access to the coach park is possible at any time by remote controlled bollards that are operated via the council’s CCTV system when an attendant is not on duty.

Other facilities for coaches that are available at the coach park include:

  • a purpose-built toilet drop
  • coach washing facility*
  • disposal point*
  • fully-furnished drivers' rest room, with comfortable seating, TV, microwave and refreshment facilities, all free of charge (when an attendant is on duty).

Both the drop-off/pick-up point and the coach park are well signposted but this map shows how to reach the facilities, whether approaching Rochester from the direction of London or Dover.

*Please note the coach washing facility/disposal point facility is only available to incoming tour groups to Medway when the coach attendant is on duty.
