Canterbury Adult Education Centre


Situated off Rheims Way, the Canterbury centre offers a broad range of courses and a superb environment for learning.

Based in a modern, purpose-built venue with panoramic vistas of the city, including a magnificent view of Canterbury Cathedral. The Canterbury Adult Education Centre is within walking distance of the city centre and Canterbury East/West train stations. Highlights include Life Drawing, Oil Painting, Sewing and Languages.

Following the Government's recent announcement regarding the easing of lockdown restrictions, our Canterbury centre re-opened on 8th March 2021.
