Attractions Nearby:http://www.canterbury.co.uk/info.asp At the heart of the district, the city of Canterbury boasts a wealth of visitor attractions. The Cathedral offers testimony to faith, history and culture and it does so with generosity. Other buildings find room to shine, illuminating their own integral part in Canterbury's history, such as St Augustine's Abbey. This story continues, because even though Canterbury is a place steeped in tradition, its attractions are very much alive and in the present day. You can save money by purchasing an Attractions Passport Ticket, which gives you entry into the Cathedral, St Augustine's Abbey, the Canterbury Tales and one of the city's museums. Romantics and traditionalists in search of British seaside magic will find all their expectations met in Herne Bay. Brightly coloured beach huts offer access to all the life of the water's edge and beyond. In the summer months Herne Bay's beauty is enhanced by the gardens that nestle the seafront, bringing floral colour for admiring visitors who pass the clock tower and bandstand, which is a focal point for musical events and entertainment. Whitstable's traditional charms, strong arts culture and rich maritime history sit easily with its renaissance. Its main streets are packed with craft shops and galleries, delicatessens and fashion shops trading side by side with butchers and bakers. Oysters and other delicacies from the sea can be enjoyed at the local restaurants and pubs or taken home from the fresh fish market at the harbour. With an unspoilt charm, Whitstable has secured a favoured spot in the hearts and minds of all who visit the town.

Stayed Thursday 6th Nov. We are regular users of this facility and while it could be improved it is so handy for Dover both going across to France or coming back it is a real godsend. Well done Canterbury.

We stayed at the Canterbury New Dover Road P&R "Aire" for the first time in August 2011,and found it great. We used the bus to the City and the adjacent pub for a meal.
Brilliant value for money, 2.50. Including P&R bus.
As mentioned in another review, it would be nice to have a separate tap for drinking water as foreign vans tend to use the tap for rinsing out van toilets.
Well done to Canterbury Council.

An excellent facility. We stayed the night 2 May before our tunnel crossing the following day.
I like it just as it is as a basic stoppover with basic facilities for overnight stays.
Well done to Canterbury council

Stayed at the P&R on Friday, the idea is excellent, however the implementation is not as good as it could be. We are 9m long and had no problems getting in the the 'Aire' with the entrance barriers etc but once in the pitches are only really suitable for vans up to 8m as there is a high steel fence at the rear of each pitch with a maximum of 18" to allow for overhang, the other side of the fence where the cars park has about 3 feet - why didn't they build the fence on the car side?

Each pitch has a slope towards the middle which required most of the vans to use ramps, a little less slope or flat would have been better.

There is only one tap with a hose attached, it was being used to rinse out a toilet brush holder when we arrived!!! A second tap fro fresh would be great

The drain point is situated near a curb and results in those vans with a drivers side dump missing the drain

The Aire is very popular and had 14 Italian, 2 German and 2 brits vans their when we visited.

We had a meal in the pub on Friday night which was mediocre at best - very much pub chain food, maybe it was due to it being Friday night

Would we stay again - yes the P&R is excellent, but it could be a little better. I would gladly pay 5 for the P&R or even more if it had EHU - I sound critical here but hats off the Canterbury for doing it

We concur Mavis's (Locovan's) findings re the P & R, and have stopped there a few times now, and doing so again in June 2010. We definitely recommend it. In fact, the first MH in the middle photo, is ours.
Buses into the city are every 8 minutes. Please see the link, and scroll down for more info. http://www.canterbury.gov.uk/main.cfm?objectid=540
This "Aire" is very quiet in the evenings, and most importantly, it is very safe and secure. Although entry is impossible 1 hour after the last bus leaves, departure can be made at any time............as long as your ticket has been validated.

Please note, that this facility is "unsuitable" for large ARVs, especially those with lengthy rear overhangs. This is due to a tight LH turn once through the barriers. Overnighting for large ARVs "may" possible on the grey area of the bus exit lane, (quite wide), but it is not as secure, and departure might have to be made before the arrival of the first bus in the morning.(See exit on street view).

Stayed here a Saturday night early January 2010. Water etc. still working despite freezing temperature. Park and ride no longer operates on Sundays but it appears they leave one of the barriers open so you can still get in and out to use the facility. Good pub at entrance with decent food and cask ales.
Superb facility - well done Canterbury, will definitely stay here again

Brilliant Stopover! How do they do it for 2.50.
Will definately make more use of this location. Have written to the Council, full of praise for their appreciation of Motorhomers needs.

Campsite Review By:Grizzly Visited: April 2009

Review Rating:: No Score

We've overnighted here twice en route to the ferry. We felt very safe both times. Allow about 30 minutes to the docks in Dover- unless traffic is very heavy.
Good pub ( The Old Gate Inn, Bridge) at the entrance to the P&R saves cooking !
Very convenient and the P&R office were welcoming and helpful.
