Attractions in Canterbury, Whitstable and Herne Bay

At the heart of the district the city of Canterbury boasts a wealth of visitor attractions. The Cathedral, St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church form the World Heritage Site, but there are also many other excellent attractions in the city too, including river tours, canoeing, museums and walking tours to name just a few.

Herne Bay offers romantics and traditionalists in search of British seaside magic exactly what they are looking for. Brightly coloured beach huts line part of the water's edge and beyond. In the summer months jet skiing and other water sports are enjoyed here, as well as the Herne Bay Festival.

Whitstable has a wide range of attractions to suit everyone. Water sports, history, shopping, walking or just relaxing on the beach are some of the things you can enjoy. Charming cafes, pubs, great restaurants and independent, quaint shops all serve to provide an unspoilt charm.
