Holiday homes in Canterbury

Holidays in the cultural heart of England

Move into an apartment in the historic centre of Canterbury and let the wind of the centuries blow around you. You will have a particularly beautiful stay on the picturesque banks of the river Stour, where you can enjoy the view of the Greyfriars Gardens or the cathedral of Canterbury. Alternatively you can move into a typical English holiday home on Old Dover Road or Whistable Road, where you can relax in the hotel's own garden from extensive sightseeing tours.

Holiday in Canterbury

Travelers and Activities

Breathe history with every step

Your journey through time begins at the Big Dig excavation site in the heart of Canterbury, where you can admire the ruins of the Roman Durovernum Cantiacorum. With a bit of luck, you can also watch the archaeologists at work. We continue with the numerous medieval buildings like the St. Augustines Abbey, the magnificent Fyndon Gate and the Greyfriars Chapel. No less impressive are the enchanted ruins of Canterbury Castle and the picturesque half-timbered alleys on the banks of the Stour. The journey through time is rounded off by a visit to the Canterbury Roman Museum, the Canterbury Heritage Museum and the Canterbury Tales, which bring the Middle Ages back to life through an audiovisual show.

Things to know

Regular events

Canterbury's programme of events includes highlights for travellers such as the "Music Festival" in June and the "Kent Beer Festival" in July, which is well known far beyond the region. Also worth a visit are the Carnival in Whistable in August, the "Kent Food & Drink Festival" in September and the "Canterbury Festival" in October.

The English verb "to canter" is derived from the name Canterbury.

Top 3 travel tips

1. spend a day at Wingham Wildlife Park

A visit to Wingham Wildlife Park, just a few kilometres from your holiday home, is not only a highlight for children. Even the big visitors will get their money's worth on the site, which is home to over 200 species.

2. go on a boat trip on the Stour

Canterbury is most beautiful from the water. Reason enough, then, to book a "Historic River Boat Tour" and cruise the canals alongside a humorous guide as the greatest sights pass by.

3. experience the splendour of Canterbury Cathedral

The main attraction of Canterbury is of course the Cathedral, which has been the home of the most important English clergyman for centuries. Let yourself be enchanted by the play of colours of the medieval lead glass windows and explore the vaults of the magnificent building worth seeing.
