Boating & Punting in Canterbury has been a favourite pastime on the River Stour for a number of years.

CANTERBURY HISTORIC RIVER TOURS' staff pride themselves on offering one of the most enjoyable insights into Canterbury's historic past which can capture the imagination of people of all age groups and can form part of a great day out in Canterbury for adults, families, kids and visiting groups.

As one of Canterbury's main tourist attractions, in one of England's principal tourist cities, the guided tour and ferry service provides both visitors and locals with a unique vantage point to some of Canterbury's most stunning and important architecture, and the company can trace its historic past to 1932.

Flowing through the heart of historic Canterbury, The River Stour is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of one of the country's busiest city centres, allowing you to discover parts of the city that are only accessible by our tour.

Our friendly staff who act as your chauffeurs and guides will present the historical facts of the passing buildings and monuments in a light-hearted and entertaining manner.
