"My Tales of Canterbury" Canterbury by Tom_Fields

Canterbury Travel Guide: 498 reviews and 1,058 photos


This is one of Britain's historic religious centers. The Cathedral is one of the grandest in the country (and that's saying something). Canterbury's old medieval quarter is a wonderful place to simply stroll about.

It's a fine place for a day excursion from London, with regular rail service. And on the way, you can take in the lovely Kentish countryside.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great place to visit

    Yes, I had to study Chaucer's Canterbury Tales at school: it was like learning a foreign language, but well worth it. I was in Canterbury just once, when I was a student. I must go back there again!
