Incredibly rude on the telephone, the website says they also care for greyfriars chapel, I phoned and asked for the greyfriars chapel number and they pretty much barked at me and hung up on me. And the number they gave me didn't work. The hospital is about 5 minutes of very bland entertainment, no gift shop or much information

This is one of the oldest buildings in Canterbury. The gentleman at the desk is happy to relate the history of the place if you have a few minutes to stop, and it is well worth the time as he is very informative. Nice for a quick drop in.

You can visit the crypt, refectory and small chapel of this former pilgrims hospitality centre, but unless you have a real interest in the pilgrimages to Canterbury it won't hold your interest for very long

Happened upon this place by chance, and there were people in the doorway, and we went in....there was an amazing art expo by local school pupils which was very impressive. Followed the building, and went to go upstairs (had missed the note on entrance fee as the doorway was busy) and was stopped abruptly. The member of staff explained about... More

Having watched this on a T.V programme we were looking forward to visiting here. The fee of £2.00 each was about right but once you had seen the tiny room and wondered how they got so many people in there...it was time to go.

Well worth a visit. I lucked out and had a private talk from the guy on the desk who was very informed. On 3 levels - each has its own story. Just remarkable.

The gentleman at the door was so courteous and helpful and really appeared to have great knowledge not just of the Hospital itself but of Canterbury in general. Beautiful old building with an interesting past. For only £2 it's definitely worth popping in for a look around if you find yourself in the area.

Friendly & enthusiastic guide at the entrance. Only takes 20 minutes to see everything, but well worth a drop in. Glad not to have been a pilgrim 800 years ago, I think the sleeping accommodation may have been a little damp!

Add this to you itinerary when visiting the cathedral. I felt this was more worthy of a donation that the big church. Facinating view of a pilgrims journey.
