Bringing Canterbury to you

Discover Canterbury's city, coast and countryside from the comfort and safety of your own home. As we invite you to explore Canterbury's city, coast and countryside as a virtual visitor. We'll be sharing ideas to inspire, content to explore, and ways to support local businesses during these next four weeks.

Now more than ever we urge you to support our local businesses, until our restaurants, cafes, bars, retailers, hotels and attractions are able to once again welcome you in person.

This lockdown comes at what is usually our busiest time of year with Christmas shoppers and folks taking festive breaks. Many business will offer online opportunities for you to still stock up on gift, treat yourself to a take away and more.
