The Hambrook Marshes are a 50 acre wetland area, not far from the centre of the Canterbury, by the River Stour. It is managed by the Love Hambrook Marches (LHM) CIO charity that was formed by local residents in 2011 to purchase the site after it was threatened with possible closure to the public. There are three main habitats at the marshes, grazed meadows, the River Stour, ditches and a stream and scrub, that are also scattered with trees and a small area of coppiced willow, with grazing cattle and remnants of a past railway visible at times.
There are three entrances to the site: Whitehall Road, Railway Bridge and Wincheap Bridge.

There is a shared use walking and cycle path, suitable for buggies and wheelchairs.

Wincheap Retail Park - a short footpath which starts near the Park and Ride exit in front of B&M and takes you across the River Stour onto Hambrook.
