    a small museum about the history of England. Flat, no translation in french except for a small piece. Very fun for children. For lovers of heritage a beautiful building and an internal structure to breath. Positive rates for visit 2 museum

  • Went on a Saturday morning in beautiful Spring sunshine. Lovely heritage building, of interest by itself. I like the chronology, it makes the display easier to follow as there is ALOT of information. A fascinating trip through time. My little boys would love the activities but the museum was closed when we last visited. Take your kids and explore!
  • Lovely historical pieces and information - A hidden gem
  • Loved the wall frieze.
  • Fantastic overview of Canterbury's history. Some real treasures and interactive activities for the kids.
  • Interesting exhibits in a lovely historic building. Ideally go on a Wednesday and get their £10 ticket that covers both this and the Roman Museum

Where to stay in Canterbury

To explore Canterbury at your own pace, book your rooms at a family-run hotel in the heart of this historical city. Staying in this area keeps you close to all of the city's main historical sites, as well as its major shopping center. Family-run hotels offer traditional values, warm hospitality, and fully-licensed bars and restaurants, all at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. For an equally comfortable and affordable stay, consider one of many centrally located guesthouses, which feature elegant rooms and covered courtyards.
