Weekend commencing 19 & 26 November (Open Day)
The A2 will be closed eastbound towards Canterbury. The information below is our recommended route for drivers travelling to our Canterbury campus.
National Highways signed diversion will be via A299 all the way to St Nicholas roundabout then A28 into Canterbury. As this route is a longer diversion for those travelling by car to the Canterbury campus, we recommend the following route:
- M2 continue on road past junction 7, where the road changes to the A299.
- A299 take the exit for Whitstable A2990 and follow signs towards the A290 (Canterbury)
- A290 follow the road for approx. 4 miles, turn left into University Road
- Once on campus look for the yellow Open Day parking signs and follow these to the car park.
