If you enjoy staying in stylish accommodation, with all those extra little personal touches that make you feel special as a guest, then just maybe, The White House is for you.

The White House is an elegant Grade II listed Regency Townhouse, originally reputed to have been the retirement home of Queen Victoria's Head Coachman and built around 1825.

Rooms are decorated in cool contemporary white hues and furnished to the highest standards to ensure maximum guest comfort, so relax in large cosy beds after a busy days sightseeing, taking in a theatre show or shopping and let us spoil you with a delicious, home cooked breakfast before you leave.

Tempted yet....if not, perhaps you should read on.

Our 4 Star Highly Commended accommodation is especially suited to guests seeking a small intimate property (regrettably we do not cater for toddlers, infants or children under 16 years) and its ideal location within the City walls is an added bonus for those who enjoy soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of a University City, but who prefer to avoid the impersonality of a larger hotel.

Still not tempted? Hopefully this should just about clinch it!

Situated in a quiet, residential lane, just a 2 minute walk (literally) will lead you right into the main High Street and to the highly acclaimed Marlowe Theatre, so we are in a perfect, if not unique location, to browse all the best shops, restaurants and of course take in a 'must see' visit to the Cathedral and Museums.

Concessionary Parking available for guests in a public car park just a two minute walk from the B&B. Charges are £6 for a 24 hour stay.

    From M2 (London)
    Leave the M2 at junction 7 (signposted Canterbury, Dover), then at roundabout take the fourth exit onto the A2 (signposted Canterbury, Dover). Continue forward onto the A2 until turn off for Canterbury city centre merging onto A2050. Continue forward onto the A2050 entering Canterbury.

    At London Road roundabout take the 2nd exit onto Rheims Way - A2050. At the next (St Peters) roundabout take the 1st exit onto St Peters Place and continue to the end where the road bends sharply to the left immediately in front of The West Gate Tower. Just beyond the West Gate is a mini; turn right (3rd exit) off it, into North Lane. Just before the next roundabout take the first right over the Causeway, turn left at the end and St Pater's Lane is almost immediately on your right. Turning down here, The White House is on the left hand side opposite Westgate Hall Road.

    From Railway Stations Canterbury West (nearest)
    Turn right out of the station, and walk down 'Station Road West'. At the bottom of this road turn left . Ahead will be seen the medieval West Gate Tower; go through the arch way (for pedestrians it's just to the left of it) and take the 2nd turning on the left which is St Peter's Lane. We are on the right about 30 seconds walk down this lane directly opposite Westgate Hall Road.

    Canterbury East railway station
    Take the footbridge over the ring-road and follow the signs for the city centre. Once at the pedestrian main high street turn left, following the signs for the Marlowe Theatre, which is in 'The Friars' towards the end of the high street. Don't turn down here, however - St Peter's Lane is the next lane on the right (nearer West Gate Towers, which will be clearly visible in front of you). The White House is about sixty metres along on the right.
