I have been to Canterbury so many times I’ve lost count. D took me there during the first weekend I met his parents 2 years ago. As they live in a pretty small town we usually head to Canterbury for a day out.
Canterbury is a historic cathedral city located in Kent (south-east England). Parts of the city have been designated UNESCO heritage world sites. As you walk around you can see that many old structures remain, like the city wall and the St. Augustine abbey remains. It is a relatively small city but it is a fairly popular destination. I always see tons of French school groups
clogging touring the streets.
From London it takes about an hour and a half. If you get an early start I would suggest visiting Whitstable on the same day. Canterbury does have a lot to explore but as it is small you can see everything and then stop off at Whitstable. I haven’t explored Whitstable as much but I have gone for the oyster festival (where I didn’t eat any) but had fudge.
