May 28, 2017 - Day 9 - Canterbury/ London - Eucharist & The Tower

Today I jumped on the road by 8am to drive down toward the Eastern coast to visit Canterbury Cathedral. Canterbury Cathedral is actually located in the city of Canterbury inside the town of Kent. The medieval walls and tower are still up around the main city and to get in by the church you have to go in to a special gate in to the city. Canterbury Cathedral has been around since 597. As today was Sunday, I actually decided to sit through the service and receive the Eucharist. I got there early and was able to walk around and take pictures...

Sep 19, 2016 - Canterbury

This is my second update for today, and I am in Canterbury, which is a bustling city. Of course, the big draw for me is the Canterbury Cathedral. Another big draw for me was to get another toothbrush. It was hard to determine which had more importance, but after I bought the new toothbrush, it was off to meander through Canterbury streets to the wonderful cathedral. You will see pictures of street life in Canterbury and then a bunch of the cathedral. As you may or may not know, this magnificent church is the cathedral of the Archbishop of...

May 31, 2015 - Canterbury

Friday: Always leave the best till last! ……… We left Cambridge reasonably early and so took a couple of scenic detours along the way. The first was through Thaxted and then Finchingfield. Both of these are very pretty villages with a distinctive style of house decoration – each house a different colour with patterns stamped into the stucco. Finchingfield was smaller and just delightful with a green, pond with ducks, little bridge over the river and quite a few thatched cottages. Then we headed into the Stour Valley and to Flatford and...

Apr 30, 2014 - Preparation and meeting up with Ross and Penelope

On the Thursday one day later than we originally planned we headed down to Bearstead near Maidstone in Kent ready for our crossing the following Thursday 1 May back into Europe. The weekend was spent prepping ourselves ready for crossing onto the continent . This included shopping for the little items not so easily obtained. On the Wednesday we met up with Ross and Penelope, Canadian friends who were visiting the UK for a family get together. We had an enjoyable day visiting Canterbury particularly the cathedral and catching up on old...

Mar 27, 2014 - Bus trip to Canterbury

Yesterday we caught the bus from Densole into Canterbury (cost £10 for a family pass for the day was cheaper than buying two return fares). We went first to the Cathedral only to find that it was £9.50 each to enter. We could go in and walk around the outside for free – after 4.30pm! We decided it was too expensive, much to my disappointment (but we have seen lots of beautiful Cathedrals) – and as the day was not so nice we didn’t even consider waiting till late afternoon to enter for free. We contented ourselves with walking around the...

Oct 2, 2012 - Canterbury and the white cliffs of Dover

When I first arrived in London back in May, my friend Monika and I were going to go away for the night however it never eventuated. Now that I'm close to leaving the UK, we finally decided on a day trip. Much to my disgust, she made me be at her place at 7am so that we would miss the London traffic. I can't complain, this put us in Canterbury by 9am where we found this gorgeous little cafe to have breakfast. Stomachs full, we embarked on exploring this famous cathedral town. What can I say, this place is steeped in history. We kept stoping...

Finding Cheryl 2012

Oct 1, 2011 - Cantebury Cathedral

Well this now 88F weather is playing havoc with my wardrobe. One pair of short sox to wear in my runners and the same pair of Capri pants that I had to wear yesterday. This is going to be like this for the next 3 days. I hope everyone has a low tolerance to high smells if you know what I mean. We spent the afternoon in Canterbury. What a busy place on a Saturday. At least I think today is Saturday as it seems that I have lost all track of time. Canterbury Cathedral in is one of the oldest and most famous structures in England and forms part...

Jul 12, 2011 - Canterbury Tales

Hi Everyone Our motorhome is now ready for the Continent. The air conditioner is working well and Paul is getting the hang of finding the satellite above us so we can get a TV signal. (100’s of channels but as usual not much worth watching except the re-runs!) We have also sold our little car. We were sad to see it go but we couldn’t leave it outside Mum & Dad’s for so long. We said goodbye to Mum, Brian & Andrew. We had a tasty meal at a Chinese restaurant in Pangborne and then popped along the road to Andrew’s cottage for a cuppa. His...

Apr 10, 2011 - Kent - Day 2

Today we had the most amazing day in the county of Kent with our friends Paul and Susie. They picked us up at 9am and we headed to Canterbury, home of the Anglican Canterbury Cathedral! We walked around the village and admired the Medieval English architecture. Then we headed into the cathedral grounds and I say grounds as it took about 2 hours to go through the entire complex and inside. After the cathedral, we had a traditional roast dinner lunch in the pub. We then took a tour on the river punt and learnt alot of Canterbury's amazing...

My Europe Adventure

Oct 27, 2010 - Canterbury Cathedral & Smallhythe

Today we drive to Canterbury for the Cathedral. Quite a drive, there and back. Doesn't seem so far on the map, but lots of small towns and parked cars on the side of the road. Park and Ride was the way to go. Great time, and to finish the day we went to Smallhythe Place the home of Ellen Terrey. A very accomplished actress, later a Dame. The house must have no foundations, as the floors were very uneven. Garden was lovely....an English cottage garden.

Feb 13, 2010 - Weekend exploring in Kent

After a good first week at work the weekend is now upon me. It is the first proper weekend I have had in the months of being unemployed. Maidstone may take you as a small community and rightly so as I have already bumped into a workmate at the supermarket- I wasn't there for more than 10 mins. However it is contrasted by a busy town center- people were knocking into me all over the show, cars always fill up the narrow roads and there is an abundance of motorways through the city. It is funny that it almost takes the same time to walk as it...
