The beautiful and inviting city of Canterbury has it's own illuminated chapter in Britain's history. Here you'll discover Chaucer and the Canterbury Tales, visit the ancient Cathedral, the centre of the Anglican faith, where 'that troublesome priest' Thomas Becket was murdered. A great base from which to strike out into a most fascinating and picturesque county, Canterbury is but one enticing aspect of Kent.

This is the garden of England, a place of castles, vineyards, acres of hops for great English beers, and a coastline studded with invigorating towns and resorts. 21st Century Kent is also the new gateway to Europe, where trains speed through the Eurotunnel and ferries cut their wake across the English Channel to nearby France. Once visited, Canterbury and coastal Kent are never forgotten.

The area abounds in culture, great heritage sites such as Dover Castle, Deal Castle and the historic Cinque ports of Hastings, Hythe, Romney, Sandwich and the ever-busy Dover. The White Cliffs region has always attracted Britain’s great writers, artists and poets.Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, lived here; the area is associated with Charles Dickens, and that quintessential Englishman Noel Coward had his home here. Every road in Kent leads to a new and fascinating discovery which all adds up to a memorable break.
