Central city day out

Students explore Rutherford’s Den as part of our in-house education programme.

Whether you’re a general visitor, or a school taking part in the Rutherford’s Den Education Programme, why not maximise your trip by visiting both us and our neighbours on the same day?

The Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities is also located on-site at the Arts Centre which is easy walking distance to Christchurch Art Gallery and Canterbury Museum – all of which run school education programmes.

Use the contacts below to combine history, art and science all in one day trip to the city.
