We discovered this by accident whilst wandering through the shopping area. . A small entry fee allows you to explore this ancient building which is steeped in history with fascinating artefacts!

The information boards have been moved upstairs, leaving the ground floor bare. Some people might find this better to imagine the conditions faced by pilgrims in this small shelter over the River Stour. The information on the Hospital's history is still upstairs, and the chapel on the floor above. It is an oasis on the busy High Street.

Very good place to visit, especially for those with an interest in history. The architecture is superb and well preserved and maintained.

This place is a little gem. The gentleman on reception was extremely knowledgeable. I loved hearing about the history of the hospital and visiting the different rooms. I was told, by the gentleman, that the chapel on the top floor of the hospital was probably the most peaceful place in Canterbury. I think he was right. I would highly recommend... More

Small little building, not much to look at. While there is history behind it, 3 tiny rooms with nothing much in it just didn't seem worth £2. Although it is a tranquil spot in the middle of the bustling city.

This was as cheap as chips to get into and I think really worth a visit. Beautiful historic building and really enjoyed looking around. It won't take up much of your day but if your in Canterbury you can't not pop in, really easy to find as it's in the high street. Don't think I would have bothered to take... More

A piece of history not to be missed. It won't take long to visit the hospital and associated chapels but it is well worth a visit. Only £2 entry and £1 for concessions. Most times there is a knowledgeable member of staff on the reception who will recount the history of the building.

Full name is "the hospital of St. Thomas the Martyr, Eastbridge and we stumbled on it by accident as there was a print exhibition in the beautiful lower dormitory. The gentleman on the reception was a delightful font of knowledge and history and for a small entry fee we could go up and see where pilgrims back through time were... More

We rather stumbled upon this by accident but we're glad we did. It is small but has a fascinating story to tell. It costs only a pound or two to go in and will take you no more than half an hour to look around but we were not disappointed.

If you're in Canterbury, this is a must-visit. There's a small charge, but it's worth it. The history of the place is incredible, and it's really well preserved. The guys who work on the reception are great and really helpful and knowledgeable. I have great respect for them. I do, however, have no respect for the Eastbridge committee (the people... More
