A new tour for 2020 to the Historic City of Canterbury. Experience Canterbury’s history and heritage, view stunning architecture and world famous buildings. One of the most visited cities in the UK. The compact city is dominated by the magnificent Cathedral, which is now a World Heritage Site, and is best explored on foot or by horse drawn carriage. Explore a maze of intriguing side streets with a rich variety of specialist shops and welcoming cafes and pubs to make this break a weekend to remember!
Gothic in style and therefore unforgettable in appearance, the 4 star Best Western Abbots Barton Hotel has served the many needs of Canterbury’s residents since the 1830’s, and residents from further afield since 1927. The hotel is just a pleasant stroll from the city centre and Cathedral. All bedrooms are ensuite, spacious and individually decorated with a TV, hairdryer, free WiFi and tea/coffee making facilities The hotel has a lift.
Friday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive South to Kent. We spend time in the Medway town of Rochester famed for its connections with Charles Dickens. We arrive at our 4 star hotel late afternoon, with time to relax before dinner.
Saturday After breakfast we enjoy a morning excursion to the North Kent coast and the popular seaside town of Whitstable and Herne Bay. Whitstable is like no other town by the sea. Its traditional charms, rich maritime history and strong arts culture complements the modern town. Part of Canterbury District, Whitstable’s main claim to fame is its oysters which remain an intrinsic part of the sea towns character. The town has a working harbour, with small independent shops, twisting little side streets with quaint names like Squeeze Gut Alley, and, of course the sea. We return to Canterbury for free time this afternoon.
Sunday After a hearty breakfast we have time for further exploration of the beautiful city and we enjoy a spot of lunch before making our way home after a relaxing weekend.
