Welcome to 'The Long Rest', Canterbury's first board game cafe!

We are an independently owned cafe and event space, with a growing library of board games for all ages.


Our goal is to create a welcoming community space for everyone to enjoy games & hobbies with friends (new and old!) and family.


We hope you'll join us on our journey, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

There's something for everyone...

We have a variety of different board games on offer no matter your skill level, age or party size.

Whether you are in the mood for a timeless game of Monopoly or looking for a cosy nook for you and your party to play Dungeon's and Dragons for the afternoon, we have all bases covered.

We also hold monthly events centred round specific games which is the perfect opportunity to meet other like-minded friends!
