Consistently one of the most visited cities in all of England, Canterbury is rich in quaint British character and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It is famous for its glorious Canterbury Cathedral which was one of the first castles erected in Kent. It is also just a five-minute walk from East station.
The food in Canterbury is a stand out with delicious traditional British fine dining on Dover Street and a plethora of amazing English pubs which almost all have beer gardens.
If you time it well and visit here during October/November, you can experience the Canterbury Festival, which showcases a variety of music, art, comedy, a circus, theatre, walks, talks and even a science strand.
