Medieval Canterbury Weekend 6th - 8th April 2018

Once again Medieval Canterbury Weekend brings eminent scholars and popular historians to Canterbury, a place of international significance in the Medieval world. Our series of talks and guided visits brought over a thousand people together to share their love of all things Medieval in 2016. Tickets for the 2018 events are on sale now! Read more...

Please Note: As in Medieval times Canterbury is an extremely busy city. If at all possible we recommend travelling to these events on public transport. If you do need to drive there is a useful park and ride scheme. Local car parks can be viewed on this map.
