Overview

A great campsite to explore Canterbury, with a bus stop outside the site entrance.

City, coast and countryside – you can take your pick if you’re basing yourself at our Canterbury Club campsite. Although a popular stopover for those travelling to or from France, this campsite offers the ideal base for exploring Kent’s coast and country.

The campsite lies a couple of miles south of the city – within walking distance (or hire a bike on site). The not so energetic can catch a bus from outside the campsite. The well laid out campsite offers a mix of level grass and hardstand pitches. There are newly refurbished toilet and shower facilities, a washing up area, children’s play area and good dog walking.

Off site Canterbury is a city packed with history, heritage and culture. It has a stunning cathedral and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church and castle. It also has an eclectic mix of specialist shops, independent retailers, bars and restaurants.

Head to the coast for Whitstable with its trendy harbour and July Oyster Festival. The more traditional Herne-Bay has two miles of seafront adorned with colourful beach huts and a pier. The quaint Victorian town of Broadstairs with its Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides is a contrast to the more cosmopolitan habour side Ramsgate noted for its pavement cafes and waterside bars.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This review is for Canterbury

As a camper I felt I was greeted in a flat manner like I was possibly going to be trouble. The site was nice and quiet and the guys who walk you to your spot were 10 times more freindly than reception. The first evening was relaxing and me and my brother walked into town to get food. On returning it was very quiet for 11pm so retired right away. I rebooked online for just myself but the next day was approached to vacate. He explained the system hadnt updated and didnt bother me again. I did this for 4 nights. On leaving one evening for shopping I asked a female member of staff for the new gate code. She said oh you are pitch 323!? Like I would know? Your supposed to come into the office to book in every day. I said if id been told I would have but she proclaimed again that I had been told. Why have an online booking system if you dont like people using it. Its a pain once on site as the office isnt always open and staff uninviting. One of the guys asked if I was "off out burgling tonight" as I prefer to explore when its quiet. I hope thats not what they thought and was just a passing joke. Theres no bins labelled for plastic so its all mixed in. I think if you are 50+ you will feel right at home but at 36 felt I put people on edge. I moved to a more age mixed site and feel more relaxed but now I have to listen to screaming kids and get covered in smoke by people burning whatever they can find. My advice is try as a non memeber before paying the fee as I thought it would save me a bunch but hasnt worked out.
