About Canterbury

Canterbury is a historic English cathedral city in Kent. Lying on the River Stour the city is perhaps best known for its world famous Cathedral. Parts of the city have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Canterbury is a popular tourist destination: consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom. There is also a substantial student population, brought about by the presence of four universities. Canterbury is, however, a relatively small city, when compared with other British cities. It is served by two railway stations; Canterbury West and Canterbury East.
