The Canterbury sculpture trail

Explore the city and experience public art, parks and gardens and the riverside.

Enjoy a free outdoor trail in the city of Canterbury, combining art and historic open spaces in one themed packaged aimed at encouraging people to actively explore the wider city. Since the late 1990s Canterbury City Council together with other organisations, including Canterbury Commemoration Society and Whitefriars Management Company have introduced public art into the city. Public art adds delight, creates memorable landmarks and in some instances, such as in the case of a seat, serves a practical purpose.

Total distance: 3.2 miles
Total time to walk: Approximately 1 hour 30 minutes
Difficulty level: Surfaced paths, mostly flat with some gentle gradients. Some paths are shared with cyclists. Suitable for wheelchairs with some exceptions.
