Canterbury - made for Christmas


Canterbury, the spirit of Christmas

Make it a Christmas to remember in Canterbury - eat, drink, shop and celebrate

It's safe to say this year has been like no other and a lot of us are in need of some festive cheer. We're working hard to bring you a Christmas worth celebrating with covid-secure events and activities, it will just be a little bit different this year.

Our city will be a delight for all the senses as you amble through the huts, local craft and produce stalls. Enjoying an array of live music performances and indulge in delicious yuletide treats beneath the twinkling lights. Leave with Christmas gifts, decorations and seasonal must-haves, as well as your very own wish list. Santa will be taking time out of his busy schedule to visit Whitefriars, Canterbury, so take the kids for a magical treat to visit Santa in person.

Meander the medieval cobbled streets and you’ll find the centrepiece of our Christmas celebrations, Canterbury Cathedral. Embrace the traditional Christmas carol services and concerts which fill the Cathedral with festive joy and thanksgiving.
