  • The castle is in disrepair and closed due to loose masonry, but it is an historic site and should be seen by everyone.
  • A good little add on to your day in Canterbury is to take a short stroll up from the old town to this mostly untouched and peaceful historical site. Nestled in a small garden adjoining a cemetery and chapel, the informative signposts give an insight into the history of the site.
  • It's a ruin and currently inaccessible due to falling masonry. Don't bother going out of your way to visit.

  • When we went there there was a graduation thing inside and the ceremony was adirable. Liked it

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.
