Canterbury City Guides

Canterbury BID’s seasonal guides are now in their 6th year and continue to be a huge success. We print 28,000 Summer Guides and 20,000 Christmas Guides – 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. They 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. We hope that you’ll get involved and promote your business throughout 2020 with the Canterbury City Guides.

  • High quality, full colour guides
