Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay and the surrounding area

If you really want to escape from the pressures of modern life, the Canterbury district contains all the beauty that you would expect of east Kent. Meandering rivers, lush green pastures, fields of flowers, beaches and ancient woodland offer relaxation and recreation. 

Whitstable Beach


One of the district's major natural assets is the 14.5 miles of coastline stretching from Seasalter to Reculver, attracting a large number of visitors. More info.
