  • Close to Canterbury Cathedral. Can walk. This is the site of the old monastery. In some places very extensive grounds include the walls of the monastery the was almost like a square. I think it was a little bit everywhere up and down? Good weather day, I walked back and forth, but not most people, and. I saw was just another person. Zesty personally know the historical background, but comfortable and clean.

  • We didn't know this place existed or that Canterbury had more than one great church. There is more in the way of Canterbury's history here. However, it felt slightly unkempt which is unusual for an En...  more »

  • Definitely a place to visit. Maybe a little out of the canonical Canterbury tours, but full of charm and romance . A useful place to understand the importance of monasteries in the past and the transition from Catholic church to England Church with the closure of the Abbeys.
  • Not a great deal of the old Abbey left (Blame Henry VIII for that) , but great place for a bit of history for what is essentially the birthplace of Christianity in England (went all down hill after this), audio guide is a wealth of information ... and included in the price. Oh and the Museum/information centre is really informative too.
  • Short walk from cathedral. Didn't pay to go inside but liked what I saw from the outside.
  • Able to take dogs inside and you also have tables inside so great place to visit around lunch time and enjoy the site.
  • Another great English Heritage site, full of history and plenty of walking on a nice sunny day. The audioguide us very good as well, and only a 5-10 minute walk to the city centre and cathedral.
