“Interesting”

Eastbridge Hospital

Reviewed 23 March 2014

Happened upon this place by chance, and there were people in the doorway, and we went in....there was an amazing art expo by local school pupils which was very impressive. Followed the building, and went to go upstairs (had missed the note on entrance fee as the doorway was busy) and was stopped abruptly. The member of staff explained about what was upstairs, and we paid the entry fee (once we realised). On looking around upstairs, you got a real feel for the way people lived on their pilgrimage, and how sparse the life was. A very simple building to visit, but it gave a real taste of how they would have lived.

Having watched this on a T.V programme we were looking forward to visiting here. The fee of £2.00 each was about right but once you had seen the tiny room and wondered how they got so many people in there...it was time to go.

Well worth a visit. I lucked out and had a private talk from the guy on the desk who was very informed. On 3 levels - each has its own story. Just remarkable.

The gentleman at the door was so courteous and helpful and really appeared to have great knowledge not just of the Hospital itself but of Canterbury in general. Beautiful old building with an interesting past. For only £2 it's definitely worth popping in for a look around if you find yourself in the area.

Friendly & enthusiastic guide at the entrance. Only takes 20 minutes to see everything, but well worth a drop in. Glad not to have been a pilgrim 800 years ago, I think the sleeping accommodation may have been a little damp!
