Very interesting background to the Pilgrims who travelled to Canterbury. The staff on duty very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit. Situated right in the heart of the town centre. Recommended

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

An amazing survival right in the heart of the city. It's only small but the explanation boards are great and it's a fasinating half an hour. It's sobering to think that it's still functioning in pretty much its original role after 7 centuries.

“Gem of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The Eastbridge hospital is an absolute gem of history on Canterbury's high street. It sits on the Kings Bridge, near to the city's West Gate. It only costs two pounds to go in, and takes about half an hour to look around. There are lots of interesting little facts written that you can read as you walk around. The guides on the front desk can tell you anything else you could possible want to know about the building. Brother Austin, master of the hospital, is a real character. For what you pay, an excellent thing to visit during your stay in Canterbury.
