Christmas and New Year in Canterbury

Canterbury, Christmas, what can a tenant do in Canterbury over ChristmasNot all students will go home for the Christmas holidays, maybe you’ve got a job, so you need to stay in the city to work, or you’re an international student who can’t travel home.

Whatever the reason, Canterbury is a beautiful city to spend Christmas and the New Year in. So here’s some ideas and suggestions for places to go and things to visit over the festive period:

  • Christmas services at Canterbury Cathedral are really special. There’s a lovely Carol Service on Christmas Eve which starts at 3pm (get there early, doors open from 2pm) as well as a Christmas Day Service too. I’d advise going along, it’ll really get you in the Christmas spirit. For more information visit
  • How about a guided paddle to burn off the Christmas turkey along the River Stour? There’s one taking place on 28 December, for more information, visit!winter-guided-trips/c1ak2
  • You can’t beat a good pantomime! Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is taking place at the Marlowe Theatre, for more information and to book tickets, visit
  • There’s a reindeer ramble at Wildwood near Herne Bay, where you can meet Santa and his reindeer on 23 December. For more information, go to

If you’re looking for somewhere to spend New Year’s Eve, how about:

What more choice could you ask for! If you are staying in the area, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
