When we found out about an old hospital it sounded quite interesting so thought we would pay it a visit. Basicly it is a small chapel with not a lot to see, though there is quite an impresive roof inside. The staff were very polite & helpful, when we were leaving they suggested we went to take a look at... More

There isn't much to see but I have always been intrigued to see what is in side. You can be in and out in 5-10 minutes really so don't expect too much.

I visit Canterbury often and always said we should visit Eastbridge Hospital and now we finally have, I was a little disappointed. I'm happy to say I have actually been inside because I love history and for that alone, it was worth the visit but I feel it could be so much better. There are some information boards upstairs but...

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.
