Places to go and how to get there

Everything on site is within a 15 minute walk. However, there's lots to see and do in Canterbury and beyond as well, and with the campus well connected via public transport to the city and beyond Kent is at your fingertips. Car parking in Canterbury can be limited at peak times so we recommend enjoying the 25 minutes to walk (or 15 minutes bike ride) into the city centre or hopping on one of the regular bus services from campus.

Our receptionists can help with destination ideas and how to get there or take a look at our information below.
