Canterbury is a historic English cathedral city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, which lies at the heart of the City of Canterbury, a local government district of Kent, England. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Lanes and Canterbury Cathedral. Get some historical perspective at Dover Castle and Ickworth House. Explore Canterbury's surroundings by going to Brighton Beach (in Brighton), Sissinghurst Castle Garden (in Sissinghurst) and The Hawking Centre (in Doddington). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, steep yourself in history at Eastbridge Hospital, enjoy the sand and surf at Camber Sands, and wander the streets of Old Town Hastings.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Canterbury online travel route planner .

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are London Stansted Airport, London Gatwick Airport, Southend Airport and London City Airport. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
