Getting around

Canterbury’s centre is mostly pedestrianised. Car parks are dotted along and just within the walls. Central parking vouchers cost from £6 to £10 for 24 hours or £1 to £1.60 per daytime hour. Daytrippers may prefer to use one of the city’s three park and ride sites, which cost £2 per day and are connected to the centre by buses every 10 minutes from 7am to 7.30pm Monday to Saturday, or 10am to 6pm Sunday.

Taxi companies include Cathedral Cars (451000) and Cabwise (712929). Downland Cycles (479643; www.downlandcycles.co.uk; 10am-6pm Tue-Sat, 11am-5pm Sun) rents bikes from the London-bound platform at Canterbury West station. Bikes cost £12 per day with helmet.
