Canterbury is located in the South East of England, so the attractions of the country’s capital city, London, are within an hour by train. Easy access to international airports, ferry terminals and cross-channel services means Canterbury is an ideal base from which to explore the rest of Britain and Europe. The city is one of the most significant historical and cultural centers in Britain, and our main campus is situated on a World Heritage Site. Canterbury is one of the safest university cities in England, and is characterized by a friendly and vibrant atmosphere and a strong community spirit.
