More information about The Observatory...

The City of Canterbury, with its world-famous cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site) has a pleasantly unexpected cosmopolitan feel to it. The city lies on the River Stour and boasts three universities plus several other higher education institutions and colleges which contributes to the city having the highest student to permanent resident ratio in the UK. However, Canterbury remains a small city in terms of geographical size and population when compared with other British cities.

A popular tourist destination, historical Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom, with the city’s economy heavily reliant upon tourism. The city is home to many ancient structures including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and a Norman castle, and the oldest extant school in the world, the King’s School.

Modern additions include the St Lawrence Ground, home of the Kent County Cricket Club and the Marlowe Theatre, named after the city’s famous son Christopher Marlowe, has been built on the river bank.
In & Around

Less than an hour from London, Canterbury is in that corner of England that’s so close to the rest of Europe. Visitors come from across the globe for world-class heritage, for culture and festivals, to eat, to visit and to study.

Within the city walls, the lively and fun medieval streets are home to many unique independent shops and traders, catering to the multitude of tourists. Whilst the charming and characterful high street reassuringly houses all of the usual retail big guns. For those looking to dine in style, Canterbury offers a vast range of fantastic places to eat and drink, from traditional pubs to world-class restaurants and bars.

But it’s also remarkably easy - in a moment - to step off the beaten track into some quiet oasis where you’ll hear nothing but songbird, and the splash of oars on the narrow, gently flowing River Stour.

The Canterbury district is well connected, with the M20 and M2 motorways providing easy access to London. Of course, residents wanting to get away to the coast have some of the most endearing coastline destinations in Britain to choose from. Margate is just a 45 minute drive away, whilst quieter Whitstable is a mere 20 minutes away.

Canterbury is served by two mainline railway stations, Canterbury East and Canterbury West, both of which connect the city to London Charing Cross, London Victoria, locations across Kent and Europe via the Port of Dover and Eurotunnel at Folkestone.
