If you are in the region this is a must to pick up information regarding attractions in the area such as maps and promotional brochures so you can plan and maximize your Canterbury stay. Even as a local I found a lot of useful information.

The Isite is now located near the Canterbury Museum and Art Gallery precinct. Lots of information available, cafe and other shops there as well. Colourful tables and chairs outside to sit and enjoy the sunshine. Short walk to Cathedral Square.
