Full Description
Leaving Dover, you will travel to medieval Canterbury. The city, a cradle of Christianity in Saxon England, stands on a site that had already been occupied for 350 years when the Romans arrived there in AD43. Canterbury has preserved some of its medieval character. Long stretches of the town walls survive, built in the 13th and 14th centuries on Roman foundations, and there are some lofty overhanging houses in the lanes leading to the great Christ Church Gate, the main entrance to the cathedral. During your visit to Canterbury, you’ll see how the medieval atmosphere blends with the modern amenities.

You’ll arrive in Canterbury with good time to explore this marvellous and entirely charming city. Your Escort will be happy to give you information on what to see and where to go, but your time here is entirely dependent on what you fancy! You may want to Visit the stunning Canterbury Cathedral independently, go shopping or just stroll along the quaint streets. 

The long grey cathedral that dominates the city and skyline is the Mother Church of Anglicans throughout the world. It dates from Norman times, and for 350 years after the murder of Thomas Becket in the cathedral in 1170 it was the destination of countless pilgrims. The murder of Thomas Becket, then Archbishop, began the tradition of pilgrimage which was commemorated by Chaucer in his Canterbury Tales. The cathedral is the city’s crowning glory - its unique features include magnificent architecture, and the fine medieval stained glass is among the finest in the country. There are intricate carvings, ancient paintings, the tombs of the Black Prince, and Henry IV and his wife Joan of Navarre, as well as a Norman crypt, 12th century choir with 14th century screening, slender Norman towers, and John Wastell’s great 15th century Bell Harry Tower. 

There are also various quaint shops and boutiques tempting you to buy special little gifts and souvenirs and when peckish or thirsty, search for the lovely little cafes hidden across the city centre. After your free time, the coach will transfer you back to the ship.
