Canterbury Bid


If you are in need of some retail therapy this lockdown, click the links below to see which local businesses are still operating online. Our businesses need your support so please remember to shop local. 

If you have birthdays and celebrations coming up, and you have family members who are impossible to buy for, why not get them a Canterbury Gift Card which allows them shop in over 100 (and counting!) different city centre businesses once the city is safe to reopen.

“They say that when you buy from a small business, someone does a little happy dance. This couldn’t be closer to the truth.”

Olivia, Fitzgerald Jewellers



MyCanterbury is brought to you by Canterbury BID. We’re here to help you get the very best from your city. We’re funded by the businesses of Canterbury city centre and we offer information, deals and discounts, and inspiration to make your time in the city fun and rewarding. We operate social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram). We talk with our local audience via a weekly e-newsletter, updating them on what’s on, what’s new, what’s coming up and where they can find a great local experience.

#iPledge – Get to know your local….

Each week through lockdown we will be interviewing owners of a local business so we can get to know more about the person behind the counter / bar / table / mask. Please visit our Facebook page and join the #iPledge Campaign to show support for our local businesses.
