There are so many fun action packed things to do throughout the Canterbury district we have had to split them up into City, Coast and Countryside. So blast off in Canterbury this summer and start exploring.


During the day start at the Dane John Gardens, here the children will enjoy getting lost in the maze before embarking on the City Wall Trail where you and your children can walk along the remaining parts of the city walls or stop off at the Visitor Centre in the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge and join one of the daily guided walks around the city that is fun and fascinating. Alternatively you can enjoy a self guided tour of the city.
