  • Parked up nearby for a wander but found this fenced off as it's now crumbling and sign said it's dangerous. Such a shame as the council should keep this preserved  more »
  • These are some interesting ruins of a Norman-era castle, which you can admire in passing from the outside - and it is worth a quick walk past if you are out in Canterbury on a day trip (for example, w...  more »

  • 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.
  • Great piece of history in Canterbury. The castle was never used for war purposes but its condition it is not ideal. It seems like the city doesn't pay much attention to it, although I may be wrong because it was close when I visited it. But is worthy a visit, you don't find those normand castles every corner or in every city
  • Canterbury is definitely one of the places close to London that everyone should visit. It's not only the cathedral and adorable town centre but also the castle which is a great place to find out about the history of the town. The access is free and it's just a few minutes walk away from the cathedral and museum. You can climb on the top of the tower for an amazing view of the area!
  • Nice little piece of history to have a short walk and enjoy the grounds for free!
  • Small little park guess it's good to look at but not as impressive as the rest of the city

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.
