Bekesbourne-with-Patrixbourne is a rural parish sited 4 miles to the south east of Canterbury. Easily accessible via train and bus into Canterbury, and direct rail link to London Victoria.

The parish is the home to the much loved Howletts Wild Animal Park but also well known for hops, sunflowers and Chalkpit Farm including Mama Feelgoods coffee shop. We also boast two fine churches and a medieval connection with Archbishop Thomas Cranmer.

In the middle of Bekesbourne we have a village hall with an excellent schedule of weekly activities, which is also available for hire. Click here for the village hall page, or look at the calendar to see whats on.

We also have a beautiful recreation ground, with a playground, sports fields and a pavilion – also available for hire. Click here for the recreation ground page, or look at the calendar to see whats on.

Our local magazine ‘On the Nail’ serves villages along the Nailbourne.
