I visited Canterbury with my wife and as we walked through the middle of town we came across the Eastbridge Hospital. We noticed first that the building was over the bridge! I know that's in the title but we noticed that before we saw an entrance. It's not a hospital as we currently use the word but this was a place that pilgrims and those in need of a bed could stay. There's a wealth of information that's easy to read on panels around the building. don't miss seeing how the river now runs beneath the building and the view under the building. This building still has residents so it's one of the oldest (if not the oldest) hospitals that has been in continuous use since being built. You'll have to visit to get more details.

The first floor mural and the second floor roof are stunning, it is just by the bridge and opposite one of the last ducking stools in England

We stumbled upon this while walking in downtown Canterbury. I missed reading about it on Trip Advisor because I looked at the word "hospital" and thought it meant old medical facility. It wasn't until I wandered in that the word is in reference to hospitality. The building was used to provide free rooms to pilgrims visiting the nearby Cathedral. This was a wonderful surprise find!

We got lucky and were able to have a short visit in the Eastbridge Hospital. The visit was wonderfully insightful as one person there was so kind to help us understand what each room was about. With these wonderful historic details the visit was absolutely charming and meaningful. Most impressive was the very unique roof construction which was visibly done by boat builders. A beautiful and unique sight.

We were walking past and thought we would pop in. Entrance was just £3.00 for an adult. It is an interesting building with a lot of history, with some parts of the building very old indeed. Allow about 30 minutes for your visit.
