Bedrooms are stylishly furnished, most with a beautiful four-poster bed. Enjoy lunch, light bites and the renowned cream teas, served daily in the licensed tea rooms in the famous Sun Street.

Canterbury lies on the River Stour, and along with the towns of Whitstable and Herne Bay is in the local government district of the City of Canterbury. Attractions nearby include Canterbury Cathedral, Marlowe Theatre, Howletts Wild Animal Park, Museum Of Canterbury and St. Augustine's Abbey.
