What train station should I stop at if going to...

We will be going to Canterbury Cathedral during a trip in a couple of weeks.

We will be staying in Dover and planning to take a train to Canterbury with a return the same day.

The departure point will be the Dover Priory but we do not know which of the Canterbury Stations we should exit to most conveniently get to the Cathedral?

Anyone able to help?

Thank you in advance...

Actually high speed rail from st pancras goes into Canterbury West, but you can also get trains into Canterbury East. See the map on the website above.

Oops, sorry you are coming from Dover.

It looks like on the map you can get to it easily by either rail station.

Canterbury East is the one you want.

There are two trains an hour from Dover Priory to Canterbury East. The train at XX45 is non-stop and takes 17 minutes, while the train at XX05 takes 27 minutes.

Further details at www.southeasternrailway.co.uk.

To be precise, you don't have a choice. Trains from Dover Priory only go to Canterbury East, which is about half a mile's walk from the Cathedral.
