Suggestions for a scenic drive to Canterbury

by lled


I will be visiting Canterbury shortly and will be arriving at Dover around 11:00. As I am staying around Canterbury I wanted to know if there was a nice scenic drive from Dover to Canterbury which may take 2-3 hours perhaps taking in some of the coast. I don't mind going out of my way if there are any nice little towns to see. I will be driving on a Sunday and would also like to stop off at a little pub for a traditional lunch if anyone can suggest a children friendly place.

Thank you for help.


Re: Suggestions for a scenic drive to Canterbury

by Kettleman

The answer has to be yes, but Canterbury and Dover aren't that far apart and depending on your interests a route could easily be worked out.

If you like historic places, then there is a nice route that takes in a few castles ranging from the Roman fort at Richborough to the Tudor forts at Walmer and Deal….

Some scenic villages and places to eat and meander by the river? Sandwich? Or perhaps the more full-on seaside experience of Margate or Ramsgate?

Travel Tips for Canterbury

1hr from London

by deeper_blue

Canterbury is famous primarily for its cathedral, Thomas a Becket was murdered here in 1170. The high street has a lot of character, there are shops with thatched roofs and the street is all cobbled stone.

The Interior Of Canterbury Cathedral...

by coceng

Canterbury is the origins of The English Christianity. It is the site where St. Augustine, the monk sent by Gregory the Great to Christianize the English, baptized King Etherbert of Kent on Whit Sunday in 597. Augustine became the first Archbishop of Canterbury, and his church, dedicated to Christ Jesus, was later burned by the Danes during the reign of Archbishop Alphege.

Train Travel

by kentishgirl

We have 2 train stations, Canterbury West and Canterbury East, both are only a 5-10 minute walk from the city centre.

Canterbury East serves Dover and London Victoria, and Canterbury West serves Ashford and London Charing Cross.

You must buy your ticket before you get on the train or you could risk a fine. There are machines as you enter the train station where you can buy your ticket self service, there are also kiosks where you can purchase your tickets from a member of staff.

You may be lucky and see the Orient Express as it frequently passes through and stops at Canterbury.

Dally if you must!

by shrimp56 about Queen Elizabeth's Guest Chamber

Apparently Queen Elizabeth I dallied in a room on the upper floor of this building. It is now a restaurant where you may dally too:)

This was an inn for pilgrims. Elizabeth I met a suitor, the Duc d'Alencon here in 1573.

Sandwiches and Spuds!

by kentishgirl about The Refectory

In the summer I love walking down here at lunchtime, grabbing a sandwich and a cold drink, sometimes a jacket potato and wandering across to Westgate Gardens to chill for an hour! They sell the best sarnies in the city!
Baguettes, bread and baps with whatever you want in it!

My favourites are the baguettes! Chicken and Cheese, Tuna and Cheese, Bacon and Mozarella.....The list is endless!
