Make a holiday apartment in Canterbury your home away from home

Canterbury is located in Kent, ‘The Garden of England’, and has a little bit of everything to offer tourists; from fascinating history and neat gardens, to fine dining and nightlife. Holiday apartments in Canterbury will suit those looking for a lively location with busy bars, but also people seeking a more serene affair with river walks, shopping, and a breathtaking cathedral. Canterbury is known the world over for its historical events, including the murder of Archbishop Thomas Becket, which was possibly the most documented and shocking act in medieval Europe. HomeAway's range of Canterbury holiday apartments are varied and as such, can suit any budget. Some of the properties available in Canterbury have BBQs, washing facilities, Wi-Fi, DVD players, satellite TV, and swimming pools.

Things to do

-Historical attractions: The town’s history is best understood with a visit to Canterbury Cathedral. Here, guests will learn of Thomas Becket's murder: when Henry II was in reign he moved Thomas Becket from Chancellor to Archbishop of Canterbury, but in his new role, the Archbishop fought against the king for the rights of the church, leading to his exile. Upon his return to the city, Becket was murdered by four of the king’s men inside the door of the Cathedral. To mark the spot, there is now a bare stone alter and a cross-shaped dagger. Outside, visitors can wander along the cobbled streets, lined with buildings erected as early as the 15th century. The West Gate Towers are located at the bottom of the town and overlook the gardens; tourists can climb the towers quite easily for a tour.

-Shopping: The modern area of Whitefriars is home to many designer and high street stores, while in the back streets of Canterbury, there are quirky shops offering unique gifts, antiques, and traditional sweets. Canterbury really is a magnet for shoppers, and there are many links into the centre so tourists can easily travel to and from Canterbury holiday apartments.

-Entertainment: Restaurants and nightlife are not in short supply in Canterbury. There is every kind of cuisine to be enjoyed, whether sit-down meals in cosy River Stour restaurants are on the cards, or just a few bags of chips down at St. Margret’s street. In the evening drinks can be enjoyed in welcoming late-night bars and night clubs. If you a quieter evening is preferred, there are cafés which double up as wine bars, serving coffee and other beverages well into the early hours. Guests won’t need to worry about travelling home to Canterbury holiday cottages as there are plenty of taxi ranks in the city.

-Walking tours: Ghost Walks in Canterbury take place every Friday and Saturday at 8pm. Visitors can join in the 90-minute, award-winning tour which blends history with humour and haunting, to experience Canterbury in a spooky light and learn a little of its history too.

-Theatre: The Marlow Theatre in Canterbury has recently been re-vamped and remains host to some wonderful productions and concerts. After a show, visitors should walk along the river and through the cobbled back streets if their Canterbury holiday cottages are within walking distance.

The property is very well located within easy walking distance of central Canterbury. We were met by Adelle who was extremely welcoming and told us all we needed to know about the house. There were three of us staying and the accommodation was more than roomy for our needs - there being two good double bedrooms. The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped though there are restaurants and pubs nearby. The lounge is comfortable and large and the bedrooms roomy and also comfy. The wifi works well and is a real bonus. The property was extremely clean and warm. We were staying in late Autumn so did not use the outside space but the outdoor table and chairs would be great in the summer. I would certainly recommend this property.
