    Canterbury Castle is a Norman Castle in Canterbury, Kent, England. It is a five-minute walk from Canterbury East Station and main bus station around City Wall.

    The castle is mostly ruin with limited amenities.

    Canterbury Castle was one of the three original Royal castles of Kent (the other two being Rochester Castle and Dover Castle). They were all built soon after the Battle of Hastings, on the main Roman road from Dover to London. This was the route taken by William the Conqueror in October 1066, and they were built originally as motte-and-bailey castles to guard this important route.[2]

      Interesting but a little lacking. Free to get in and worth a visit if you are in the area. This is a shell of a keep with no roof or floors. Some interesting notice boards about the place explaining what things are. From here you can also walk the curtain wall which makes for a good walk.
