Canterbury is better enjoyed on foot to stroll around the streets graced with unique boutiques and quintessential English pubs and cafes. For longer walks and a stunning scenery, head into the countryside, although amazing hidden flower gardens are closer, located along the river.

The city in the garden of England

The beautiful coastline and the glorious countryside can be explored together with an interesting cultural heritage. Surrounded by nature, hop gardens and generous fruit-growing, it is the perfect destination for an unforgettable visit. However, do not just visit Canterbury but Herne Bay and Whitstable too.
