Kent Wheel


A giant ferris wheel came to our Canterbury campus as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.

It was an exciting opportunity to soar above the University and the city of Canterbury. We were delighted that so many of our staff, students and members of the local community came to enjoy this unique attraction.

Please share your photos with us so that we can add them to our image gallery.

Don’t worry if you missed out this time, the giant ferris wheel will return to Canterbury in summer 2015.

All profits from ticket sales go into the Kent Opportunity Fund. Every year the fund supports students by providing scholarships to enhance their academic studies, offering bursaries to assist individuals who are suffering financial hardship, and funding projects that help students to develop their personal and professional skills.
