Canterbury is world famous for its magnificent cathedral - designated a World Heritage Site - and for the many attractions within the medieval walled city. With its narrow cobbled streets, the city retains all the charms of the old and yet Canterbury has developed into a vibrant university city with an excellent shopping centre and plenty of attractions both historical and modern. The Canterbury Tales attraction is well worth a visit to experience the route of the pilgrims as recounted by Chaucer in the Canterbury Tales. Canterbury has the perfect blend of city, coast and countryside, ensuring that however varied your interests are, you will be spoilt for choice.
The PLUS centre in Canterbury is built on 300 acres of parkland overlooking the town. Modern buildings are surrounded by open green spaces, courtyards, gardens, ponds and woodland, and the view across Canterbury and the Stour Valley all help to make it an attractive and friendly place to study. The campus is self-contained, which means that you are usually within walking distance of a cinema, theatre, sports centre, nightclub, library, banks, shops, bistros, bars, public access terminals, medical centre, bus-stops and launderettes. Canterbury city centre is only 20 minutes walk away, and on a direct bus route.
