Canterbury is a lovely city with medieval buildings, lively bars and atmospheric pubs as well as a wide range of shops. It has a warm and friendly atmosphere, and is within easy reach of London and mainland Europe. The Experian Inner City Vibrancy Report(2013) ranked Canterbury as the 3rd most vibrant city in England and Wales. It is a cultural city with a strong focus on the arts. There are a number of museums and galleries and the city is also home to the Marlowe Theatre, which hosts national touring productions of West End shows and attracts top artists from the worlds of dance, music, comedy, drama, ballet and opera.
Canterbury is situated in Kent (the ‘Garden of England’), and offers you the opportunity to visit one of the most picturesque areas of the country. East Kent has 120 miles of coastline. The nearest coastal town to Canterbury is Whitstable, famous for its Oyster Festival. Herne Bay, Ramsgate and Margate are all close by as well, should you wish to extend your visit into a short break on the Kent coast!
