Very interesting, a real insight into medieval pilgrimages. For the £2 you get to see the vaulted dormitory, the chapel and the refectory. Staffed by a very charming volunteer.

Fascinating historic building at only £2 to get in. Atmospheric and still home to people today! Friendly welcome and peaceful interior to enjoy. Display boards help bring it to life inside

A very reasonable admission charge (£2) for a most interesting place, dating from the latter days of the twelvth century. The roof timbers, only a few years less old, are supberb. I look forward to seeing the wall painting when it is completely exposed.

A short visit here nicely complements a tour of the very much grander cathedral and the city's excellent guided walk. In the heyday of pilgrimage, this building must have been bustling with activity, so it's all the more poignant that the large cool undercroft where they once slept is now so peaceful, just a few steps away from the busy...

I have always walked past but never gone in and this summer I had a few spares hours and thought I would go in. I did not need at few hours as it could be all viewed within 30mins. It only cost £2 to get in but I felt that it was worth it, I loved reading all the different... More

One of the oldest buildings in Canterbury. Fascinating to see how the roads have risen over the centuries. For a couple of pounds it is worth a visit.

This is an amazingly old building for the pilgrims, the history of the place is mind boggling in how they erected it etc, the bell cage is a very intricate structure. Well worth a visit

What a beautiful place! an oasis in the shopping centre. Stepping back into time when pilgrims visited the Cathedral and stayed here. The chapel upstairs is a restful beautiful place.
