    Hi we are lookin to stay for a couple of nights here to visit the xmas market before we catch the ferry week Sunday.

    Does anyone know if a 10metre RV will fit. If not can anyone suggest a reasonable priced
    campsite

    Thanks Chris

    If its not too busy at the end where the grey water dump is you should be ok.
    If its full it may be a bit tight. IMO

    It has been a while, over 5 years :Blush: since I had a look, but if my memory serves me right, I did not think it possible for a 12 m. RV and would question it being possible for a 10 m RV.

    Hi you two :) We have seen a big Carthargo in there, but probably only 8m or just over. Gut feeling is 10m is too long. Next year they may extend into the opposite field. No good now of course. Without looking things up I do not know offhand where else. All the best. Jane and Bob :)

    not sure but the coach park nr Sainsburys had spaces for RV and opposite i felt sure there was a council yard which last year offered parking for motorhomes, 10 min walk to city centre. this is on B2248 Kingsmead road right on a roundabout both are opposite each other.:thumb:

    Things may be a bit tight for you at the Park & Ride. The following is from their website and may be of interest to you. No overnighting though.


    As an alternative to Park & Ride we have spaces available at Canterbury Coach Park. There are 10 bays within a short walk of the City centre and these are located in Canterbury Coach Park on Kingsmead Road (CT1 1BD) and include a visitor centre with basic facilities. The cost is £10 per 12 hours and tickets can be purchased from pay and display machines on site at any time.

    Give the C&CC site there a ring to see if they can "fit" you in. Nice site and bus stop right outside site entrance.
    Reasonably priced? thats open for discussion:BigGrin:

    Hi

    I have seen 12 metres coach conversions at the CCC Canterbury so no issues there.

    The park and ride site at Canterbury is great, we used it twice last year. I don't think you will have any trouble with size of your van, after our visit we were so impressed with it that I emailed the council and got a lovely reply saying that it has been so popular that they intend to enlarge it, and put an additional tap in further away from the wc dump. remember you can not get in on a Sunday, but there is plenty of room on the approach road to stop over night. Why oh why don't more cities do this and encourage people to visit them and spend money in there shops

    Thanks to all who answered. Glad to know that we can fit on but have decided to book on the CC site Black Horse but will certainly mark it a favourite for when we return.

    Thanks Chris

    Chris,

    Try e-mailing colin.perris@canterbury.gov.uk (head of Parking Services, I think) and you should get a definitive response. He has proved to be a very useful contact to a number of us on this site.

    Alternatively, you could have a look on Google Earth. The P & R is at co-ords 51deg15'43.71"N , 1deg06'07.93"E

    Slightly off topic but, how do you actually get into the camper parking?
    And how do you pay?
    Also is there a cut off time in the evening for entry?
    The reason I ask is that a couple of months ago I arrived on the late ferry from Calais and couldn't see how to access the camper parking. I ended up parking in a lay-by with a load of lorries :Sad:

    If my memory is still ok I think the entry is closed from about 20:30 each evening and doesn't open at all on Sundays.

    The Canterbury web site (canterbury.gov.uk) will lead you (eventually) to the information.
