Latest Marlowe Theatre parking reviews
Great spaces. Only a short walk to the centre of Canterbury.Ben
Short walk to centre of Canterbury. Easy to find Matt was very helpful.Gillian
This worked well with plenty of spaces available, once we reached the right car park. If using the recommended post code - CT1 1BW - google maps will take you another nearby car park (not Sainsbury's). It would thus be helpful to include this warning in the access information (provided by Sainsbury's?), as some may unwittingly otherwise incur penalties for using the wrong car car park (despite having already paid in advance).Charles
The owners were helpful & friendly. Spaces suitable for the average car, although a longer car may prove a tight squeeze without overhanging the pavement.John
Great, thank you.JOAN
Very easy to find, perfect location and the most reasonable price for this location!Sydney
Very easy to find and access. Was a bit concerned about the security but everything was fineRuth
