However, due to the necessary Covid-19 guidelines in place to ensure the safety of visitors, the only tour currently available is The Canterbury Classic. All tours start from outside the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge.
Requests for specific features, i.e: being picked up from your Canterbury accommodation, end points and visiting specific sites may be possible, but CT Tours must receive a booking request form at least two weeks in advance in order to confirm.
