Visiting Canterbury during the autumn and winter months is a delightful experience and shows the city in a completely different perspective to the warm and high sun summer months. The many city parks are full of festival events, markets and entertainment with the magnificent autumn colours in the backgrounds. Whilst in the evening the parks offer a relaxing and gentle stroll or alternatively along the city wall, with the views searching across the landscape with the early evening light casting mysterious shadows across the Cathedral and other magnificent Georgian and period architecture. All museums and attractions are open and shopping is extremely good value in the Whitefriars centre with late evening opening. The city has an array of restaurants, cafes and local bars. At The Coach House we are offering numerous Canterbury B&B breaks and guesthouse weekend specials.
There are many events taking place from October until March, outdoors and indoors, including the Eurofair and Canterbury Festival. In December there is the traditional Christmas Market, situated only a few hundred metres from The Coach House. Please contact us for further information and visit the city of Canterbury, a city for all seasons.
