Be captivated by the stunning restoration of this 130 year old Gothic revival-style building. See the mesmerising memorial window dedicated to World War One. Comprised of about 4,000 individual pieces of glass, originally installed in 1938, the window was saved and has been re-installed taking pride of place inside this incredible space.
Scientific discovery and hands-on experimentation take centre stage in the recently opened Rutherford's Den. The space is dedicated to Nobel Prize Winner Ernest, Lord Rutherford who studied, attended lectures and undertook his earliest experiments at Canterbury College. Step inside and enjoy fun, hands on activities as you learn about science in the rooms where Rutherford studied. Open 7 days a week, 10am to 5pm. Get your tickets here or from the front desk.
