Hambrook Marshes is a 50 acre wetland site lying beside the River Stour to the south west of Canterbury city. The site is about a mile long, and includes The Great Stour Way (Canterbury to Chartham), a shared use walking and cycle path.
It has a choice of four access points:
from Canterbury: either on foot from the city, via the riverside path through Westgate Gardens and Toddlers Cove (in all under a mile to the start of Hambrook) , or use parking at Toddlers Cove (Whitehall Road CT2 8BG, charging applies) and walk from there (0.3 miles to the start of Hambrook)
from the Wincheap Retail Park - use a short footpath which starts near the Park and Ride exit in front of b&m bargains and takes you across the River Stour onto Hambrook
from the level crossing in Whitehall Road (parking free but very few spaces) reached from Westgate by taking St Dunstan's Road, Linden Grove, and Whitehall Road (CT2 8NL)
from Tonford - by footbridge from Tonford Lane, which meets the Great Stour Way from Chartham
