  • I was not going to visit this site, but I was very attracted by the pictures on postcards and I couldn't help myself. In sincerity with respect very much the place as one of the oldest Christian monasteries, I found though a bit neglected, also the part that remains of the monastery is quite small and not attracted me as the image used for postcards. A bit pricey considering the visit more accurate may take at least half an hour.

  • Great day out for the family. Accessible in most parts and an interesting couple of hours tour using the audio guide
  • Very interesting place with major historic significant. Not much to actually see but the audio tour made it come alive for me.
  • A serene place. Worth a visit.
  • What a hidden jem in the city. Hidden behind a big wall this abbey is steeped in history. Walking amongst the grave of dead kings. Wonderful. Next time I'm taking a picnic.
  • Worth every penny to visit

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.
