Visiting the Vibrant City of Canterbury!

Where else to visit than the city of Canterbury which has recently been voted the 7th best place to live in the UK?!! This vibrant City lies on the River Stour in South East of England, situated about 60 miles from London and with high speed rail links from London make Canterbury an excellent City to visit for a holiday or short break.

Canterbury Cathedral with its history dating back to 597AD is not to be missed, the amazing medieval architecture is full of life with a thousand tales to tell and at the same time so amazingly tranquil, in fact it is the ideal place to start your exploration of Canterbury.

And what to see next? Why not look at St Augustine’s Abbey, the site of the re-birth of Christianity in Saxon England in the beautiful Abbey built in 6th century and now a ruin – or amble through the lovely and historic medieval streets of the city with quirky buildings, boutiques and café society to enjoy.

For a slower pace relax on a boat trip on the River Stour to drink in the wonders of this City and see the lovely medieval buildings that overhang the waterway. As the sunny autumn day is coming to an end with the sun low in the sky take a leafy stroll in the Dane John Gardens which are located inside the City walls and offer a haven of peace in the city centre.

Why not take a stroll in one of Canterbury's many parks with the Family

Why not treat you and your family to a week’s holiday or a long weekend during the Autumn half term and stay in a self catering cottage within the city walls itself? If you have the opportunity to drive take the time to explore the countryside and nearby towns of Whitstable, Herne Bay and Hythe.

Mulberry Cottages are a holiday agency based in Kent with a great selection of holiday cottages located in this beautiful Kent city and also in the surrounding countryside.

For those of us that love to shop do take time out to discover the many gift and boutique shops located down the cobbled side streets of Canterbury along with the well known names that we associate with the high street shops.

Visiting Canterbury at this time you can also take advantage of all that Canterbury Festival has to offer. This annual event is Kent’s International Arts Festival with over 200 events during the two weeks of the festival that runs from 16th October to 30th October 2010.
