Canterbury City Guides

 

2018 is the fourth year of our seasonal guides and they have been a huge success. We print 20,000 each time (Summer/Autumn/Christmas) and they are distributed free of charge to locals, visitors and students.

The A5 printed guides are distributed to hotels and B&Bs, travel points, The Beaney Library, local schools, businesses, venues and stores.

The guides are packed with fantastic ways to spend time (and money!) in Canterbury. We want to encourage shoppers to seek you out, to visit the city end to end and to make them aware of the many special places to discover. This could be your store, bar, event, visitor attraction, service, menu, tour – whatever you offer in the city, we want to share it.

Summer Guide – out 21 May. Artwork for design (1 April) / completed artwork (9 April)

Autumn Guide – out 3 September (in time for new and returning Uni students). This guide has planned distribution on Uni campuses. Artwork deadline mid July.

Christmas Guide – out mid October. Artwork deadline early September.
