Canterbury Guided Tours

Our tours depart daily from The Buttermarket

Visitors can enjoy entertaining walking tours through this historic city with Canterbury Tourist Guides Ltd, which has been running them since 1948.
Whether you are organising a trip for schools or a family holiday, the tours are a great way to see the sights and learn some fascinating facts about them, too.
A dedicated team of Blue and Green Badge Guides provide information of the highest quality as they take you on a journey into the past through narrow, cobbled streets and by crooked 17th-century houses.
Canterbury Tourist Guides is the only company that includes a walk around the precincts and the outside of Canterbury Cathedral as part of the fascinating tour.
Lasting 90 minutes, the tours are excellent for visitors with limited time, or those wishing to combine sightseeing with other activities.
The daily tours depart at 11am from The Buttermarket, opposite the cathedral entrance, with an additional 2pm afternoon tour from April to October
Tickets are available from The Canterbury Visitor Centre and The Roman Museum, or can be booked via the company’s website –
Pre-booked group tours at discounted rates can be designed for individual requirements in a variety of languages. Please contact the company for more information.


Canterbury Tourist Guides was Runner-Up for Best Company or Venue Offering Guided Tours in the 2018 Group Travel Awards, and the 2017 winner for Service Excellence in The Luxury Travel Guide Awards, which represent the pinnacle of hospitality achievement.
