Where to go
Famous for being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Canterbury is a city which has been an infamous pilgrimage site since 1012 and a popular tourist destination for centuries. Sitting prettily in the south east of England, this is an ancient cathedral city steeped in history, made famous by Geoffrey Chaucer's classic 'The Canterbury Tales'. With Gothic, Romanesque, Norman and Tudor styles, the architecture of the buildings which surround you each have a story to tell and a piece of history to recount, so remember to keep your eyes peeled. Situated on the River Stour, you can take a boat trip through the city, gaining new perspectives on the quintessentially English city or even visit the Howletts Wild Animal Park for a wildlife adventure, but whatever you do, Canterbury is sure to be a hit.
