Overview

A great campsite to explore Canterbury, with a bus stop outside the site entrance.

City, coast and countryside – you can take your pick if you’re basing yourself at our Canterbury Club campsite. Although a popular stopover for those travelling to or from France, this campsite offers the ideal base for exploring Kent’s coast and country.

The campsite lies a couple of miles south of the city – within walking distance (or hire a bike on site). The not so energetic can catch a bus from outside the campsite. The well laid out campsite offers a mix of level grass and hardstand pitches. There are newly refurbished toilet and shower facilities, a washing up area, children’s play area and good dog walking.

Off site Canterbury is a city packed with history, heritage and culture. It has a stunning cathedral and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church and castle. It also has an eclectic mix of specialist shops, independent retailers, bars and restaurants.

Head to the coast for Whitstable with its trendy harbour and July Oyster Festival. The more traditional Herne-Bay has two miles of seafront adorned with colourful beach huts and a pier. The quaint Victorian town of Broadstairs with its Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides is a contrast to the more cosmopolitan habour side Ramsgate noted for its pavement cafes and waterside bars.

This review is for Canterbury

Staying at Canterbury is great for visiting the historic city, visiting local wildlife centres of which there are plenty. Most of the Kent coast is around half an hour away, as is historic Rochester where Charles Dickens wrote most of his books and Chatham for the dockyard, where HMS Victory was built also Medway has lots of other historic sites. Canterbury site is in a good central location for most of Kent.

This review is for Canterbury

We took an autumn seasonal pitch at this site and had such a good time that we booked in for the winter season too. This is a very busy site a lot of the time but is still peaceful. The staff are lovely and always willing to help. The amenity blocks are really clean and there is a good dog walk through an area of woodland which forms part of the site. There are bus stops outside the site with a good service to Deal and Sandwich or to the city centre where you can catch buses to loads of places in Kent even on a Sunday. In the summer, an excellent fish and chip van visits the site twice a week. There are also some nice walks across country, accessed through the golf club opposite the site. Canterbury city centre is amazing with so many beautiful old buildings, masses of shops, the cathedral and river walks. There's so much to do. We can really recommend this site. If there's one thing that would improve the site, it is a pathway across the grass from the visitors' car park to the pedestrian gate in the corner of the site which gives access to the bus stops without walking along the road.
