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.

Very helpful staff arrived on a busy Saturday at 3pm shown to hard standing by a busy man on a bike.Fresh bread available at 9.30.Sandwich and Whitstable are both a must with quaint narrow lanes and little shops.Park in the car parks at both as the streets are a maze.

This review is for Canterbury

A warm welcome from the wardens went down well and they provided us with a lot of useful information. We were more or less able to choose our pitch but needed levellers. The facilities are excellent, two new blocks with plenty of showers and hot water and even hairdryers. The access from the main road is a bit narrow but the entrance is not far along. The directions in the book are excellent. It is a 25 minute walk into the city all downhill, but there is a bus stop just outside the site on the main road which takes you to the bus station in town if you prefer. Canterbury is all that I hoped and expected and the Cathedral is the highlight of any visit. Would recommend the site and the city.

Surprisingly good.

This review is for Canterbury

Surprisingly good. We had visited this site some years ago, and I did not recognise it on our return. Very peaceful even though the site was nearly full, with easy access to the city of Canterbury. Toilet facilities are now excellent. Very friendly wardens, because I had left my caravan step on my storage site they me found a step to borrow.
