A Postcard from...

CANTERBURY

Less than an hour from London, Canterbury is a

world-famous cathedral city and was one of medieval

Europe’s great places of pilgrimage and knowledge.

With a vault of history and heritage, a treasure chest

of arts and culture and an abundance of outdoor

adventures, visitors are assured a memorable stay

in the city which was the backdrop to Chaucer’s

famous Tales.

Welcoming over one million visitors a year, Canterbury

Cathedral was the scene of the murder of Thomas Becket,

the Archbishop of Canterbury who was in conflict with

the King of England, Henry II, over the church’s rights and

privileges. Murdered by the king’s supporters, Becket was

canonised soon after his death and venerated as a saint

and a martyr by both the Catholic Church and Anglican

Communion with his shrine becoming a focal point

of pilgrimage.

The Cathedral houses many collections and archives and

with a team of volunteers guiding visitors through the

magnificent building and extensive grounds, it’s no surprise

Canterbury Cathedral is a number one visitor attraction as

well as being a place of worship and music.

16

An ideal place for visitors to continue their

Canterbury experience is at The Canterbury

Tales Visitor Attraction.

With a combination of live costumed

characters and entertaining audio guides,

it gives visitors a great introduction to the

city and its famous literary connection.

Once a roman cemetery and turned into a civic

park at the end of the 18th Century, Dane John

Gardens is well worth a wander. The city walls

border one side of the gardens and a gentle

walk to the top of the roman mound provides

excellent views over the city. Despite its city

centre location, the historic park creates a

sense of escape and on a summer day, the lime

tree lined avenue is a welcome shaded walk

leading to the park’s fountain. A bandstand hosts

traditional concerts and there’s a safe play place,

picnic area and a refreshments kiosk.

For the ultimate farmers’ market experience,

The Goods Shed is not to be missed. With

glowing reviews, it’s a sensory treasure chest of

successful British cottage industries showcasing

local produce; from the butchery and fish stall

to the veg stall via the bakery, the cheese maker

and the bottle shop.

The Telegraph described the restaurant as ‘a

scene that makes you wonder if you’ve died and

been whisked off to gastronomic heaven!’

A Postcard from Canterbury

The rustic beamed roof and beautiful Victorian

windows only add to the appeal of this foodie

Mecca. Make sure you leave with a bespoke

Goods Shed in a Box to help with

withdrawal symptoms!

For art lovers, Canterbury offers a range of

galleries and museums with the centrally located

Beaney House of Art and Knowledge offering a

varied programme, including interactive events

for all ages. The Marlowe Theatre welcomes all

the major tours, including hit West End musicals

while the Spitfire Ground hosts pop and

rock concerts.

For lovers of green spaces, the city’s Westgate

Gardens is a showpiece not to be missed. Dating

back to the Middle Ages, the gardens cover the

remains of the old Roman wall and London road

gate. There’s a Norman archway and a 200 year

old Oriental plane tree which is believed to be

the oldest specimen in the country. The Great

Stour runs through the park and as well as being

home to water vole, brown trout, kingfisher,

moorhen and heron, visitors can enjoy relaxed

chauffeured punts which can either focus on the

history or wildlife of the area.

VisitEngland/VisitKent

The Crab and Winkle Way is a must for cyclists.

There are plenty of cycle hire shops so the

seven mile ride from Canterbury to Whitstable

is a route visitors to the area can really enjoy.

Passing through the Kent countryside, the

journey is almost totally traffic-free and follows

the old railway line to the outskirts of Whitstable.

Highlights along the path include the 13th

Century Church of St. Cosmus and St.Damine

and the beautiful Blean Woods and Clowes Wood.

On arriving in Whitstable, enjoy a harbour

side view and the catch of the day at a local

restaurant or purchase your own from Whitstable

Fish Market, a dream visit for fish and

seafood lovers.

A Postcard from Canterbury

The Foundry Brew Pub in White Horse

Lane is a unique craft brewery based

in what was a Victorian Foundry which

produced cast metal items that were

shipped over the empire. Today, visitors

can enjoy supping a pint and tucking into

good pub food while watching production

in the display microbrewery.

As well as local beers, ciders, lagers and

world bottled beers, the team at the

Foundry Brew Pub love Gin so much

they make their own from scratch! Full of

Kentish flavours and brewed with the finest

English barley, the handcrafted and

un-filtered Gin includes eight tasty

botanicals, including hops and

apples from local farms.

Shrewsbury began life as a coaching inn in the 16th

Century and is famous for being the place where

HMS Beagle.

beamed ceiling. Guests can enjoy local fine ales and a

range of single malt whiskeys. The tasty menu offers
