Located in Kent, Canterbury is a cultural treasure with so much to see and do during your stay. Booking car hire in Canterbury can help you to get around and see what this beautiful city has to offer you...


Begin your stay by visiting the iconic Canterbury Cathedral. It's the oldest in England and, together with the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church, makes up Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

As well as boasting a rich history, Canterbury is a cultural city. There are galleries to view and theatres to attend, including the Marlowe Theatre which stages West End shows, as well as the ballet, opera and comedy.

But although Canterbury is a historical and cultural city, it is also modern and cosmopolitan. With fantastic shopping opportunities and trendy bars and restaurants, Canterbury has it all. It also has an excellent nightlife with a range of clubs playing a mix of music.

There are lots of green, open spaces to relax in during your stay, including Curtis Wood Park and Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve. Take a walk alongside the river or a boat trip if you prefer. Evening river tours are also available by candlelight, which makes for a special and memorable night.

You could also visit Canterbury's Herne Bay - a two-mile stretch of seafront fun. Herne Bay has a beach and watersports are available for the active. Cafés, fish and chip shops and ice-cream parlours all line the beach.
