Pilgrims Hotel

18 The Friars Canterbury Kent CT1 2AS

The city has occupied something of a unique position in our imaginations as perhaps the medieval city in Britain. After the death of Thomas Becket in the 1100s Canterbury Cathedral became the focus of Christian Pilgrimages across the world, a turn of events that found further celebration in Geoffrey Chaucer’s bawdy medieval ‘rom-com’, The Canterbury Tales.

Room4U takes you back to 12th Century Canterbury when hotels like the Howfield Manor bore witness to the Third Crusade and Baldwin of Forte was still the city’s quarrelling Archbishop. Located in a quiet rural spot off the A28 some two miles west of Canterbury City Centre this attractive ivy-clad hotel stands in five acres of pleasant landscaped gardens and offers guests a tantalising glimpse of an idyllic bygone era. French-style cuisine can be enjoyed in the hotel’s ‘1181’ Restaurant. Hotel rates from £48.00 per room.

Room4U can offer massive discounts on Canterbury guest houses and bed & breakfasts that are perfect for tours of the Cathedral and wonderful days out around Coastal Kent. This is a deeply historical city with a true medieval heart. Check out the 10th Century Castle built by William the Conqueror and selected as a 'Cool Place' by the 2010 ‘Cool Place Guide’. Visitors to Canterbury can also look forward to relaxing river punts from Westgate Bridge. The River Stour flows through some classic English gardens and there's no shortage of wildlife too. The Thanington Hotel in Wincheap is probably the closest for the purpose. Call the Visitor Centre on +44 (0)1227 378100 for more details on attractions and Canterbury accommodation.

Many historical structures remain in the city, including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey. Canterbury is by-passed by the A2 London to Dover Road. It is about 50 miles from the M25 motorway, and 60 miles from Central London. If no rooms are available to book on the dates you intend to travel, Room4U will display an alternative selection of b&bs hotels and hotels in Canterbury Kent, so DO take advantage.
