Canterbury’s rich history told with insight and humour

Experience Canterbury’s unique history from a different angle on one of these shared guided river tours.

Sit back and relax as the tour guides take you under the King’s Bridge, one of the oldest working road bridges in Britain, up towards the hidden serenity of the Greyfriars’ Island, once the home to the Franciscans, one of Canterbury’s many religious orders.

As you journey back downstream, you pass by sites such as the sixteenth century Old Weavers’ House as well as the replica ducking stool, an infamous part of England’s long and turbulent history.

Past the Marlowe Theatre, the newest addition to Canterbury’s skyline, you are treated to such views as the old Blackfriars’ Monastery, now a proud extension to the prestigious King’s School, which connects onto the scenic and quiet Solly’s Orchard.
