Howletts Wild Animal Park

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Fun for all the family."

Howletts Wild Animal Park Photo, Canterbury, England
Quote:
Howletts Wild Animal Park is a large park filled with enclosures housing many different types of animals. the park is very large and does take a while to walk round so I would give yourself the whole day to do this. The park is open everyday, summer 10am-6pm and winter 10am-5pm. The admission costs are Adult (over 16 years) is £18.14 and child (3-16 years) is £14.50, you can get a 20% discount if you purchase your tickets on-line. I do feel that these prices are too high for what you actually get especially if you have a large family and do not give good value for money however the size of the park means that a whole day can be spent here for that price. New this year though (if you look o...Read More

Club Chemistry

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Refurbished but still the same old club"

Quote:
Club Chemistry claim to be the biggest clubbing experience that Canterbury has to offer however I find this statement to be quite funny due to the fact that Club Chemistry is one of the only night clubs in the city. The nightclub is located in a rather run down area approximately ten minutes’ walk from the main city centre and near to the Canterbury East railway station, which makes it quite easy to find as you can just follow the signs to the station. The nightclub is based in a huge building with three floors which all have their own theme, décor and music genre. The club was refurbished in September 2010 but has not improved vastly as the place is always dirty with sticky fl...Read More

Restaurant | "One of the best restaurants in Canterbury"

A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I decided to go to Marlowes restaurant for a lunch set menu. We had walked passed this restaurant many times during our time living in Canterbury but had never gone in due to the expensive menu prices; Main meals ranging from £9.95 to £24.95, however we decided to give it a go as the food always looked good and the restaurant was always buzzing.The outside of the restaurant is is very inviting, with its cream and dark green theme it stands out from the surrounding restaurants. The front of the restaurant has full glass panelled doors which are opened in hot weather. There are also some tables and chairs outside, though I have never sat out here. Inside the ...Read More

Restaurant | "Authentic Italian Pizza"

Pizza Express - Canterbury Photo, Canterbury, England
Quote:
I have always enjoyed eating out, especially pizza but had previously assumed that Pizza Express was an expensive restaurant until I recently went there on a meal with friends. It was very easy to book the table, we were able to phone up the day before and book for the party. You can also book on-line by visiting the pizza express website and using their on-line booking system which is easy to use as long as you have an email address.The Canterbury restaurant is very picturesque, it is in an old foundry so fits in well with the rest of the historic surroundings. The outside is decorated with beautiful flowers and and greenery. It is quite hard to find, especially if you don't know Canterbu...Read More

J.D Wetherspoons is a large chain of pubs that can usually be found in any town centre. In Canterbury we have the Thomas Ingoldsby.By day the Canterbury J.D Wetherspoons is a friendly family pub serving an assortment of good quality food. They have lots of amazing deals such as £2.99 meals, Thursday Curry club where you can choose a curry from a wide range available and get a free beer with it. There are many childrens meals available which are smaller in size (only slightly though) as all of the meals are of a good size and come with a choice of healthy drinks. Their menu is good in the sense that it gives information on food that is spicy, gluten free, vegetarian, 5% fat etc. This allows...Read More
