Old architecture that still exists in Canterbury includes a city wall established in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, a Norman Castle, St Augustine's Abbey ruins, and possibly the oldest school in England, The King's School.

Modern additions include the Canterbury Christ Church University, the University of Kent, the St Lawrence Ground - Kent County Cricket Club's abode and the Marlowe Theatre.

The programme will include musicals, drama, ballet, contemporary dance, classical orchestras, opera, children's shows, pantomime, stand-up comedy and concerts. A secondary performance area called The Marlowe Studio will be dedicated to creative activity and the programming of new work, offering a riverside terrace, three bars with views of the city and a restaurant.
