Canterbury

One of the UK’s most venerated cities, Canterbury’s significance spans from the Roman times through to World War II. Overflowing with 2000 years of history, a trip here will help you understand why pilgrims used to flock to the city and why tourists still do.

Christ Church was England’s first cathedral and its remarkable architecture clearly reflects its hierarchy in the Anglican church. Canterbury’s Tudor-style timber houses provide a photographic backdrop while its medieval alleyways are a pleasure to get lost in. Creating your own Canterbury Tales is simple when there are Norman castles, Roman walls and abbey ruins to explore.

From Canterbury, you can easily road trip to the seaside town of Margate, where you can fill up on oysters and enjoy the sandy coastline.
