The French Hospital, Rochester, is one of the oldest and largest Huguenot charities in England. Founded originally in 1718 in St Luke's, just north of the City of London, it provided shelter for poor Huguenot refugees. Now in its fourth home, it is still true to the aims of its founders and benefactors and offers sheltered accommodation to people of Huguenot descent in 58 flats in an early Victorian square off Rochester High Street. It houses many Huguenot treasures - bibles, prayer books, silk samples and portraits.
