Canterbury is a fascinating city, with hundreds of years of history – in fact, it dates back to Roman times. The impressive cathedral has been a place of worship for more than 1,400 years, and is the ‘headquarters’ of the Anglican Church (The Archbishop of Canterbury is the symbolic head of the worldwide Anglican Communion). Pilgrims have been travelling to this city for hundreds of years, and they were the inspiration for Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales’.
Apart from its history, Canterbury has a fantastic selection of shops, entertainment, museums and eateries, and makes a great day out. What’s more, it’s only half an hour from Broadstairs by train.
