Canterbury hen weekend destination, cottages and activities

Canterbury Hen Weekends

A beautiful historic town with great Hen Party Activities, Hen Weekend Houses, Bars and Restaurants, Things to Do, a vibrant nightlife & nearby beaches. 
The town is steeped in tradition, dominated by the impressive Cathedral. If you go towards St Peter’s Street you will find a host of restaurants and bars which offer you a great night out away from the usual ‘L’ plates.

Canterbury Hen Party Houses

...The transfers to and from Canterbury were on time and the driver was very friendly. I only wish we had had a bit longer to enjoy the house and explore the surrounding area, but who knows one day we may return there.

Spa treatments

Indulge in some relaxing beauty treatments to soothe your skin, increase circulation & eliminate toxins. The spa is set in a wonderful setting, surrounded by gardens. If you want to make a real occasion, combine it with some afternoon tea or a late lunch.

Canterbury River tours & punting

Escape the busy pavements and enjoy a chauffeured punt along the River Stour with a glass of champagne. Alternatively, try a haunted river tour in a candle lit Edwardian-style punt discovering the frightening secrets that lie hidden in the darkness.
