England, Canterbury Guide (B): A One Day Trip to Canterbury

Canterbury is a beautiful, small town, close to the capital of the United Kingdom, London. When you are planning a city trip to London, it is nice to combine this trip with a day trip to Canterbury. This town is definitely worth the visit! Since Canterbury is not that big, one day is enough to see everything. In this article I will take you with me back to Canterbury and tell you all about the things to do and see while traveling to Canterbury.

It is opened every day from 09:00 till 17:30 and on Sunday from 12:30 till 14:30. The entrance fee costs £12.00.

You can also do some good shopping in the town. There are several shops: international shops and local shops. I personally love to explore unknown shops (or anything) and take a look at what it sells. I had the same thing in Canterbury, when we found a nice bookstore in the middle of the shopping street. I am a real book fan, especially when it comes to English written books, so I had to pay a visit to this store. I can take hours in a bookstore to explore new books. Eventually I also bought one. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
