If you’re a school trip or group making a pilgrimage to Canterbury, our colourful hostel has everything you need for a great stay. Close to the town centre and with free Wi-Fi and internet access, our refurbished Victorian villa makes a great value base for the cathedral city.
YHA Canterbury has a dining room and lounge that can be used by groups, and there’s free Wi-Fi and internet access for staying connected. The hostel can offer group catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus there’s a licensed bar for relaxing in the evenings. You’ll love relaxing in our fascinating building and it’s the perfect mix of bold décor and period charm.
Canterbury itself is packed with history and museums – the Chaucer is yours what you do. Visit the famous cathedral (one of the oldest places of worship in England), take a historic river boat tour, or explore the fun Canterbury Tales attraction. There’s fantastic walking and cycling nearby too, so rambling groups can take on the North Downs Way or explore Kent’s beautiful countryside by bike.
