P1020568 (5)

The Middle Ring is a greener hike, taking about 4 hours to complete. Including some of the quaint little towns around the city, the cathedral spires can still be seen across the fields, making this an immersive, simple and friendly trail with plenty of options for lunch and rest-stops. The city's greenery is on display here, as are some lesser known pieces of Canterbury's history, if you know where to look (and we'll make sure you do!)

The Middle Ring

The Middle Ring is what we think of when we think "hiking"...

Some beautiful vistas, some mud, and a pub for lunch!

This is more challenging walking than the inner ring, but we know that for some hikers this is just where it starts!

4.5 hrs (10.5 mi / 16 km)
