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:


  • 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)

  • Wincheap Retail Park - 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

  • 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)

  • Tonford - by footbridge from Tonford Lane, which meets the Great Stour Way from Chartham
