About Canterbury

Canterbury is situated in the heart of Kent, a county renowned not just for its historical and cultural importance to England, but also for the beauty of its countryside. Although Canterbury is a relatively small city, it has a unique mixture of modern vibrancy coupled with a pride in its rich and well-preserved history.

Canterbury boasts a wealth of attractions to both captivate and educate students. Famed for its rolling hills, orchards and woodlands, the Kent countryside is a sight to behold. Due to Canterbury’s ideal location, it is but a short coach trip away from the very best that Kent has to offer. These include the famous White Cliffs of Dover and the incredible Dover Castle, the quaint and unique historic city of Rochester, and the home and museum of Charles Dickens in Chatham.
