    Tourist Information Centre

    Favorite thing: We have an extensive tourist information centre, it is located just across from the Cathedral Gate, they book coach and ferry tickets, have leaflets and books on the city and surrounding areas.

    They also sell Souveniers.

    Favorite thing: Ive never actually used them here but there are two.

    One is located right in town next to O Briens Sandwich Bar, and the other is down near Canterbury West Station, right next door to Brockmans Travel Agent.

    Signposts!

    Favorite thing: I personally think that the city centre is very easy to navigate because it is very small, but everywhere you will find these black signposts to direct you towards the sights in the correct direction!

    1hr from London

    Favorite thing: Canterbury is famous primarily for its cathedral, Thomas a Becket was murdered here in 1170.

    Fondest memory: The high street has a lot of character, there are shops with thatched roofs and the street is all cobbled stone.

    Canterbury in spring :)

    Canterbury in spring

    Favorite thing: Canterbury is picturesque anyway, but the flowers that came out, it being the start of spring, were simply lovely.

    Some of the gardens are so ordered and geometric in look... so EXACT. I am definately a fan of the more wild variety, but ordered gardens have a place in towns like this. This garden is near the Westgate Towers. The time and effort and pride were well appreciated! :)

    Favorite thing: Obviously anyone going to Canterbury has to visit the Cathedral, even though I think it's weird to have to pay to get into a church. But it's worth it, as it's al very impressive!

    Fondest memory: The picture is of the Great Cloister, part of the Cathedral

    Pick up a copy of the Canterbury Tales

    by Herkbert Written Sep 17, 2011

    Favorite thing: I picked a copy of the Canterbury Tales to read after our travels to Canterbury. It just seemed like a nice way to feel a part of the groups of people who had traveled this way before us.

    A book to consider is the one that has been translated into modern english by Nevill Coghill.

    Enjoy and imagine!

    Favorite thing: It was gray and drizzly when we were in Canterbury -- how do you think the grass gets so green?? But the Christmas trees and lights were EVERYWHERE.
