Canterbury BID is proud to be part of the England’s Historic Cities “England Originals” campaign which has produced film footage, itineraries and an App for visitors, focussed on Canterbury’s high speed link to London (under an hour). The BID is working with Visit Canterbury and many partner businesses in the city to fund this project.
Here is the film that is part of the campaign – Canterbury is featured on day 3 of the itinerary (and looks glorious!).
England Originals is brought to you by England’s Historic Cities, a partnership of destinations brought together by common product and interests. Its purpose is to exchange knowledge, find solutions to shared challenges, benchmark performance, raise the profile of England’s heritage product and facilitate joint activity, all with the intention of maximising the potential of the cities’ visitor economies.
Its geographical footprint spans the length and breadth of England and membership comprises 13 of the country’s premiere heritage locations: Bath, Canterbury, Cambridge, Chester, Carlisle, Durham, Greenwich, Lancaster, Lincoln, Oxford, Salisbury, Stratford and York. They are joined in England Originals by the City of London and emerging historic destinations, Truro and Worcester.
Additional partners to England Originals are English Heritage, the Historic Houses Association and the National Trust, as well as long standing strategic partners to the consortium, UKinbound and London and Partners.
