Location

The station is 61 miles 65 chains (99.5 km) down the line from London Victoria (measured via Herne Hill) and is situated between Selling and Bekesbourne.[1] All serving trains are operated by Southeastern.[citation needed]

History

The station and its line were built by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway, while Canterbury West station was built by the South Eastern Railway.

Although called Canterbury East, the station is about 12 mile (0.8 km) due south of Canterbury West station, and only about 20 yards (20 m) to its east.

The framework of the platform canopies were originally installed at the never-opened station at Lullingstone.

The semaphore signals at the station were replaced with coloured lights in December 2011. The elevated signal box remains but is no longer in use, with signalling on the line operated from a control room at Gillingham. The signal box has now been given Grade II listed building status.[citation needed]

Canterbury East's ticket barriers were removed in early 2011, as they were the only ones of the kind in the country and spare parts were no longer easy to obtain. Work began to install a new gate-line in October 2016. Coventry and Earlsfield are the only other stations to lose their ticket barriers.[citation needed]

The station has a ticket office, an electronic ticket machine, a cafe and toilets.

Fictional references

In Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Final Problem, a short story in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson hide from Professor Moriarty at a station in Canterbury. The station is unspecified but is likely to have been Canterbury East as Holmes and Watson were making their way to catch a boat on the Continental Express from London Victoria station.
