Home to the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and the oldest church in the English-speaking world, it's no wonder that the Canterbury Cathedral Precincts are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. What's more remarkable is that you can sleep in the very heart of the Precincts, in a comfortable and affordable hotel. Owned by the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury, entry to the splendid Gothic Cathedral is thrown in, as well as generous and delicious breakfasts.



Waking to the sound of the Cathedral bells ringing and seeing them toll from your bed is a wonderful experience!

The hotel is situated within the actual grounds of Canterbury Cathedral and offers terrific views.
By car: There is limited parking at the hotel which must be pre-booked before arrival. The hotel is two hours' drive from London on the M2.
By train: Canterbury East and Canterbury West are under 10 minutes' drive or 15 minutes' walk from the hotel. Canterbury East: London Victoria (2 hours), Dover (20 minutes). Canterbury West: Margate and Ramsgate (20 mins), London St Pancras (55 mins), Charing Cross (1 hour 40 mins). trainline.com
