The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge
Beautifully restored, the Beaney houses all sorts of wonderful pieces and has a full library. Tourist information is also inside.
A short walk down the high street this building has amazing brickwork and houses not only the tourist office but has a cafe and holds regular art exhibitions.
Cultural centre, library, free exhibitions and Tourist info. This should be your starting point!
A quirky little museum, library and tourist information all in one! Great for children too.
Shipped off to Australia Beaney made his money hoaxing people in small Australian outback towns that he was a visiting dignitary, no internet! He sent the money home to build the institute:-)
“I am putting this down as a great place to eat but its got great cocktails and very mellow feel. They are currently aiming for a michelin rating so making a big effort on the food front”
“London shows at Canterbury prices. Interestingly this is the 3rd Marlowe Theatre to be built on the same site.”
