Welcome to House of Agnes

Address: 71 St. Dunstans Street, Canterbury, CT2 8BN

Hotel Description

The House of Agnes takes its name from the Charles Dickens' story, David Copperfield. In the book, the building was the home of Agnes Wickfield and several passages describe aspects of both the exterior and interior of the historic building. The heritage garden and buildings are rich in history; as well as Roman artefacts, an extremely rare scientific instrument, known as an “astrolabic quadrant” and dating from 1388 was unearthed during recent renovations. It was described as "one of the greatest ever scientific discoveries of its kind in the world" and is currently on show at the British Museum.

Canterbury Centre - Town Centre

Canterbury Centre - Town Centre

Distance 0.33 miles (0.53 km)
Canterbury Cathedral dominates the narrow streets and ancient buildings of Canterbury. Parts of the city are still enclosed by the medieval city walls which remain along with the castle keep. Settlement here predates the Roman invasion. One of the sights of Canterbury is the well-preserved Roman pavement in the longmarket shopping precinct. The most famous historical event which took place here was the murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170 by the knights of Henry II. Beckett's shrine was destroyed during the reign of Henry VIII but many tombs still remain such as those of Edward the Black Prince and Henry IV. Other places to see include St Martin's Church said to be the oldest church in England and St Augustine's Abbey.
