What to do in Canterbury
Canterbury is one of the UK's major tourism cities and still retains much of its distinctive historical architecture, despite suffering bombings in the Second World War. From the city's most iconic landmark Canterbury Cathedral, seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, to the medieval town centre and 11th century Canterbury Castle, the city has much to offer cultural visitors, while the new Whitefriars development has served to make Canterbury a popular destination for shopping trips in the Kent region.
We have a number of hotels only a short drive from Canterbury, ideal whether you're travelling around the coast or further inland. Our hotel in the fishing town of Whitstable is only five miles from Canterbury city centre, with convenient road access in and around the city, while our hotels near Canterbury in Ashford, Folkestone and Dover all benefit from close proximity to major transport networks, making it easy to reach Canterbury.
