  • It was a freezing day but worth the walk along the city walks with a view of the Dane John Gardens. The ruins are amongst the most ancient in the UK dating back to the time of William the Conqueror ar...  more »
  • The ruins of Canterbury Castle are definitely worth a short visit. There is not a lot to see, but the information boards on the property make it an interesting and worthwhile visit. 
  • When did you last view a castle for free? It doesn't happen often. This is a simple site with good descriptions on site boards and a nice visit for 15 to 20 minutes. Thanks Canterbury.

  • Great ruins to visit, good idea to walk via the wall from city center, approx 10 ish minutes. Then walk back via back streets. Free to visit.
  • 4 walls, and one staircase. Not much else to this castle, but the price is right (free). A good place to keep going kids busy for 30 minutes on the edge of Canterbury city.
  • Nearly ruined, yet you will get a gimps of history here ,you should not miss this one if you visit the place.
  • Quiet space on occasion you can go up on top of the Castle and look upon the city of Canterbury. Despite the castles battered appearance it has never featured any battles nor has it been laid siege. The small grass area surrounding the park is frequented by local people and on a bright summers day could be ideal for a picnic!
  • Small and interesting Norman Castle c11 century which has 4 walls still standing. You can enter into the castle and there is no admission charge.
