There's nothing like packing up your bags on the spur of the moment and booking a holiday. Canterbury, in Kent, is an ideal size for a last-minute weekend pilgrimage, with all the main sights, at walking, distance within the city centre. Right in the heart of Canterbury is its magnificent 1,400-year-old cathedral, a beacon of Medieval history and literature. Strolling around the historic streets will take you right back to Chaucer's Middle Ages, as you discover the city's arty cafes and beautiful greenery.
To explore the historic Canterbury Cathedral you'll want a comfortable base. Here at Last Minute Cottages, you'll always find availability on our website, throughout the year. Whether you long for a Canterbury cottage that sits just within the city walls, or you'd prefer a pet-friendly place outside the town centre, our team will find the holiday home for you. And rest assured, last-minute doesn't have to come with a price tag; by booking late, you'll benefit from the best deals on the market.
As a holiday destination, Canterbury is perfectly located for exploring the rest of Kent. With nature reserves, woodland and charming seaside towns less than an hour away, you can spend the day in the great outdoors before returning to an evening soaking up the culture at the Marlowe Theatre. Wine-tasting is even on offer, with nearby vineyards to compete with the best in France. So if you're looking at England and Wales for your next break, put Canterbury at the top of your list!
