Hire a campervan in Canterbury, England’s ecclesiastical capital. This beautiful cathedral city and UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in Kent, England.
Travel to Canterbury in a campervan and take in this splendid historic town and it’s beautiful architecture from behind the wheel or by foot. Despite being a relatively small town, Canterbury is a popular tourist destination and one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom as it is home to Canterbury Cathedral. Founded in 597 and later rebuilt in the 11th century, Canterbury Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury and one of the oldest and most well-known Christian structures in England. The structure welcomed thousands of pilgrims during the Middle Ages who journeyed to Canterbury to visit the shrine of Thomas Becket.
Continue on your campervan hire from Canterbury Cathedral to St Augustine’s Abbey which was founded by the first Archbishop of Canterbury, St Augustine, in 598. This stunning Abbey’s importance was recognised by invading Danes and the Normans, who constructed a Romanesque monastery, replacing the old Saxon buildings.
The weather in Canterbury is usually mild around this time of the year. You could enjoy a walk along the banks of the Stour as it flows towards the Westgate or even take a break onboard Canterbury’s Historic River Tours Visitor Attraction. If you decide to go for a stroll, do make sure you take the time to appreciate the beautifully well-kept historic gardens, one of the most serene spots in Canterbury. During your campervan hire, make sure to rest your feet by sitting on a bench, watching the punts and ducks go by as well as seeking out the 200-year-old oriental plane tree.
