Canterbury offers a wealth of British history spanning centuries. Avoid London's heavy traffic. - I will pick you up by car at Bromley South station. We will drive through the scenic Kent countryside for about 90 mins before arriving at beautiful Canterbury. Travelling by car gives you access to other wonderful locations in Kent, many hard to reach by train or crowded coaches. (Please see my profile for more information). Explore the city’s quaint streets with me, a Kent local, who will point out places of historical interest, including the locally named 'Crooked House’, The Old Weavers' House and Buttermarket. How about a spot of English cream tea at one of the tea houses? N.B. This tour excludes tickets to the Cathedral to ensure you have privacy. Please enquire with us first so we may agree timings and before you purchase tickets online. The Cathedral, or parts of it, is closed on occasion.
