Half Day: Canterbury

Join our jaunt to beautiful Canterbury, set on the River Stour in an attractive corner of rural Kent. Canterbury's skyline is dominated by the stunning cathedral but this is only part of the story; the ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site while other ancient ruins such as the Castle are reminders of the city's history, heritage and culture.
