Kipps Canterbury

March 9th 2018

Canterbury is a cool place to visit. I’ll bet the cathedral springs to mind, maybe Chaucer as well, but there’s more than that. 

Stay at Kipp’s in Canterbury as a great central location to explore the city and the county. Facilities include dining room, TV lounge with digital TV, a garden, a fully equipped kitchen, a small shop offering breakfast and other food items, bicycle hire. Free WiFi & broadband access. Rooms include single/double/twin/family & dorms of up to 8 beds (most en suite).

Canterbury’s central role in Britain’s history is documented in the cathedral, Canterbury Roman Museum, the Canterbury Tales experience, but just wandering around the city will give you a real sense of time and place. It is only a short trip out to the seaside – the historic resort of Herne Bay or fishing boats huddled in Whitstable harbour or the bracing fishing villages of the south east coast. And let’s not forget the ‘Garden of England’ stuff – Kent’s rich lush countryside dotted with grand country homes.
