Eastbridge Hospital, Canterbury

(4.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Tour one of Canterbury's oldest buildings at Eastbridge Hospital. Built in the 12th century, the site originally provided refuge for pilgrims on their way to Canterbury Cathedral following the murder of St. Thomas Beckett. Today, it continues to offer accommodations for the elderly of Canterbury. The well-maintained building hasn't changed much since its construction, and information boards upstairs in the chapel to give you a better outlook on the history of the place. Keep your eye out for temporary art exhibits, hosted here from time to time. By using our Canterbury vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Eastbridge Hospital and other attractions in Canterbury.

  • Great staff. Helpful and intuitive.
  • Well kept and tells us so much about medieval times.
  • Fascinating medieval pilgrim hospital, a hostel for poor travellers. To understand Canterbury and pilgrimages, this is an essential place to visit. Don't miss the chapel on the upper floor.
