Living in Canterbury

Canterbury – the place probably ring a bell. You’ve heard of the Archbishop of Canterbury right? Well, he lives there. It is also the place Christopher Marlowe (playwright and poet), and the site Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered.

Along with all those claims to fame, it is home to over 30,000 students from four great universities –  The University of Kent, the University College for the Creative Arts, Canterbury Christchurch University, and The Girne American University. Although the city it a real tourist destination in the area, it is also a heaven for its students. Full of great nightlife, restaurants, bars, gyms and everything else you could need – not to mention the magnificent cathedral you will get to graduate in
