Our knowledgeable and friendly guides delve into the rich history of Canterbury to provide a thoroughly enjoyable and eye opening experience. What makes us unique is that our tours are led by people who used to be homeless here, who will share with you their own experiences and those of others who have found themselves living on the streets of Canterbury, connecting the city's rich history with modern life. We currently only offer bespoke group tours.

We had a very enjoyable tour. Interesting facts I didn't know about the city I lived in for 24 years. Equally interesting stories of the homeless. Good luck in the continuation of the tours.
