Situated in the county of Kent, often called ‘The Garden of England’ due to its abundance of hop and fruit-growing gardens, Canterbury is the epitome of a medieval English city.
With the coastal towns of Herne Bay and Whitstable making up the district of Canterbury, visitors to Canterbury will love that there is literally something for all the family to enjoy here. Whether on a short break or longer family holiday, you can cram your days with trips to the surrounding areas, or assume a more leisurely pace by interspersing them with walking tours to take in the world-famous Canterbury Cathedral, built in 597 A.D. For those with a love of heritage and history, you’ll be spoilt for choice. St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church are both close to the cathedral, while Greyfriars Chapel, Eastbridge Hospital and an old Norman Castle are close by.
But Canterbury isn’t just about history. There is a large range of attractions and activities for all ages, both indoors and out, if the British weather is a little inclement. Arts and culture, guided walks, river trips and the opportunity for a little retail therapy can be enjoyed in the city, while trips out to explore the nearby countryside and coast can be enjoyed by all the family.
In Canterbury, arranging a car for those trips out and about couldn’t be easier. We have a large range of vehicles suitable for singles, couples or large families and groups at our main Enterprise depot, 125-127 Northgate, in the city. Other nearby branches are at 59 Godinton Road, Ashford, 144-146 Westwood Road, Broadstairs, and at Dover South Services.
