Canterbury's Welcome To The City Tour

People getting on the boat by the Millers Arms near the coach park

For groups visiting Canterbury and Kent, Canterbury Historic River Tours is proud to announce 'The Welcome To The City Tour' for groups arriving in Canterbury before 11am in the morning.

Our guides will welcome groups arriving at Canterbury's coach drop off point of Whitefriars and will offer passengers a free orientation tour of the city whilst showing them down to the tour departure point. Upon arrangement, we can also welcome groups at Canterbury's Coach Park, just off Kingsmead Road.

These tours are available if pre-booked Monday-Friday March-October before 11am in the morning, weather and river conditions permitting. Book early as we see this as being a very popular introduction and means of getting into the city centre with the Cathedral and all the other main attractions situated only a couple of minutes away.

This tour is ideal for senior groups.
