Spooky evening outings

‘Tis the season for a bit of spook. Canterbury has a couple of creepy options for those who like a bit of a wander on a brisk, October night.

On Thursdays and Saturdays through December, Canterbury Punting Company is offering haunted punt trips along the River Stour. During your ghoulish journey, you’ll hear about local ghost stories and folklore that are sure to make your hair stand on end.

You can also hop onto a boat with Canterbury Historic River Tours for their ‘Chilling Tales’ ride. You’ll be escorted through the historic river districts and back-ally waterways while your guide gives you some dark history lessons. Get your cameras ready for this one; the building views are stunning.

These spooky river options run after the sun goes down, so be sure to pack a blanket, or you can purchase a drink before you set sail.

For those who want to get their steps in, join local legend John Hippisley for a 90-minute trek through some of the most haunted parts of Canterbury. Informative, funny, and chilling, this tour is great for the whole family. You’ll laugh, chat, and — probably — have a couple of jump scares.

We’ve already got our bookings for each of these options, so more reviews and photos are to come!
