Hotels in Canterbury

Possibly one of the most visited cities in the United Kingdom, Canterbury is a city full to the brim with history and culture, stunning architecture, good food and excellent shopping. There’s much to see and do over the course of your stay and it’s the perfect destination for a holiday, weekend visit or day trip.

History

Made famous by its magnificent cathedral, Canterbury became a major focus of pilgrimage following the martyrdom of Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. A journey of pilgrims to his shrine served as the basis for Geoffrey Chaucer‘s famous 14th-century classic The Canterbury Tales.

The history of the city goes back much further than the medieval period, however, as Canterbury has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Lower Palaeolithic axes and Neolithic and Bronze Age pots have been found in the area.

There are many historic structures throughout the city. In fact, the old city wall was founded in Roman times before being rebuilt in the 14th century. The ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and the Norman Canterbury Castle also make for an interesting visit.

The King’s School, established in 1541 under the reign of Henry VIII, is thought to be the oldest school in England. The medieval St Margaret’s Church is home to Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, and life-sized character models help to reconstruct these famous stories for visitors.

Canterbury Cathedral is the mother church of the Anglican Communion and was founded in 597 AD by St Augustine. It now forms a World Heritage Site and receives over one million visitors per year, making it one of the most visited places in the whole of the UK.

Culture

Canterbury is home to the Marlowe Theatre, named after the Elizabethan playwright and poet Christopher Marlowe who was born in the city. Theatrical performances take place in other areas of the city as well, such as in the Cathedral and St Augustine’s Abbey, and there’s a cinema for some Hollywood action, too.

Family Fun

Families may like to visit Howletts Wild Animal Park with over 90 acres of beautiful ancient parkland to explore and some of the world’s most endangered and rare animals. A trip to the coast in nearby Whitstable or Herne Bay is a great day out with plenty to do for the whole family.

Food

When it comes to eating out, Canterbury has something to satisfy all taste buds – whether it’s a gourmet meal you’re after, or a fun family dinner, there’s something for everyone.

Take a seat, relax and watch the world go by in one of Canterbury’s many small cafés or tea shops and enjoy some home-baked goodies and a warming cup of tea. Foodies will also enjoy the annual Canterbury Food Festival, which offers visitors the opportunity to try new foods and enjoy fresh, local produce.
