We will meet at Canterbury Bus Station to start our day. We will spend a few minutes getting to know each other and talking about our tour. Then will begin by exploring the City Centre and visiting the famous Canterbury Cathedral ( entrance fee not included) . The key to this tour is to keep looking up, as on every corner there is a surprise. Then I will take you to see some lesser known and hidden 'gems' of our beautiful city. If the weather allows us we will have some snacks in one of the beautiful parks of Canterbury and we will take this time to get to know each other a little bit better or I can spend this time answering your questions. After we feel refreshed and ready to continue we will finish our tour off by continuing on our adventure through Canterbury. Durning the tour I will be telling you detailed stories and legends surrounding these sites and be happy to answer your questions and give recommendations. I will strive to provide a unique and unforgettable experience of this beautiful little historical city! I am looking forward to meeting you!

Any equipment needed on the tour
We will be walking through the historical city and visiting the main sites such as Canterbury Cathedral (entrance fee not included), and we will explore the gardens of Canterbury . Then we will move onto lesser known locations and attractions such as the roper house , the hidden sanctuary of the grey friars and the ducking stool. Many of the things we will see are hidden and hard to find therefore it is important to have an adventurous spirit!
Be prepared for the famous English weather it is better to have an umbrella and not need it and not have one. Families are welcome however, guests under 18 will need an adult to accompany them.
