History, British Charm and Precious Location

Canterbury

You may know Canterbury just as “the Cathedral City”. But this little city is more than that! 

Part of UNESCO, the Cathedral will always be one of the most important historical marks in the UK. But this is not the only beautiful thing to enjoy while you study in this picturesque place. The proof of this is that Canterbury is nowadays one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK.

Don’t worry, this charming city is not just about monuments! 

You will always have a place to have fun with your future colleagues and friends, without all the confusion of the big cities. 

With a large percentage of students, Canterbury will always have events and parties of every kind. 

You have amazing night clubs if you like to dance and for a more sociable program students likes to go to The Ballroom or Alberrys where you can find university societies events and live music. 

If you have a passion for performative arts, you always have the Marlowe Theatre, where you will discover a house of comedy and music shows. 

For students that are faithful fans of a good festival, the city is a host of the Canterbury Festival that happens every year and that is the stage of over 200 events during two weeks. 

Living in Canterbury is like living in a medieval town, such as you see in the movies. The landscapes are just breathtaking. So, we bet that you will crave for some outdoor walks and maybe some rowing in the river canals too. 

To do some shopping you have Canterbury High Street, famous to have retail stores, restaurants, food markets and cafes, where you will find everything you need.
