Staff were a little disjointed at dinner and breakfast with items missing (I had no mushrooms and my friend had no bacon at breakfast which rather than take the breakfast back left it while we waited around 10minutes for the missing items to be brought to the table). Canterbury Business Improvement District (BID) is an independent, business-led, not-for-profit initiative voted for by the businesses of Canterbury in July 2014 and again in July 2019 for another five-year term. Located at a 2min distance from the Westgate Tower when you walk towards the High Street and Cathedral. You can go up a wee crooked winding wooden staircase to the first floor (2nd floor for American Tourists). But do choose your seats carefully, as the side ones probably don't get a great view and you would have to twist to see the stage.

These Gardens are located at a 5min walking distance from the Cantebury West Railway station, right next to the West Gate. Head straight over St George’s Street into St George’s Lane and go right at the end into Watling Street, then left into Marlowe Avenue/St Mary’s Street. What you see now has remained after many conflicts the last being bombed by the Germans in the Second World War.The double yellow lines mean no parking, but that’s self-evident; if you park there, no one else is going to get through. I was recommended this hotel actually after I had booked it, but what a lovely hotel, staff were so professional and friendly, which is what you want, we dropped our bags off early and were pleasantly surprised when they had been taken to our hotel room for us, I thought that was a nice touch. From the moment you set foot on the grounds, you are transported to another time and place, surrounded by stunning Gothic architecture and steeped in the rich cultural and religious history of England. We hadn't planned to go here, but were looking for a time filler, wandered into the hospital and were "upsold" a joint ticket. The book clerk also said they were considered by location scouts to be included in one of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter films, but sadly didn’t get approval.

The only downside is that staff need to know that when the breakfast restaurant isn’t very busy, their voices carry. The Greyfriars Gardens are a lovely canal-side garden in the city of Canterbury, which follows a canal through the city. So durable were these walls, with a thickness of two-and-a-half metres, that they offered stout resistance to the Viking invasions of Kent between the ninth and 11th centuries. Worth for a quick stop of 10mins perhaps for travellers and can walk around in the main park but not huge amount to see.While my photos imply a lot of greenery, most of the city centre looks more like Hospital Lane and High Street – no sweet little front gardens, just cobblestone or blacktop. It’s a reminder that in coming to this most essential of England’s historic towns, the pedestrian follows in the footsteps of not one fabled journey but two.

Add to this the great Cloister and the Chapter House, where the Benedictine monks assembled daily, and the cathedral seems to become a church of many churches. The service there was very well carried out, only issue is we were moved from room to room to room(down and upstairs). Jeanne was brilliant at bringing the place alive and linking it with the rest of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. The funding from the Home Office Safer Street’s Fund has been received following a successful bid by the University and a range of partners including Canterbury City Council, Kent Police and Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott. The 'Mirror Mirror' exhibition was great, and the staff scattered around places knew a lot about the pieces and items!We were impressed with the sound proofing in the room ( we couldn't hear the very busy road at all) and with the black out curtains. Extensive Menu split between really good meat, vegan and vegetarian pub food with food clearly labelled for allergens too. The Street Marshals operate in pairs, one male and one female, with a first aider available on each shift.

We’ve looked through different sources to find the best options, including favorites like Canterbury Cathedral, Westgate Gardens, and Canterbury Roman Museum. We scoured through the internet and read through 6reputable sites andblogslike Time Out and The Crazy Tourist. Fantastic location right next to the cathedral, clean comfortable room, delicious breakfast and friendly, helpful staff. Special shout out to the Manager Stuart, his Mum Sam and Connor who’s moustache is so groomed you could hang your coat on it (or anything else that takes your fancy) Thanks for a great experience. Go west into Castle Row, across Castle Street into Rosemary Lane, then right into Stour Street, a fine little straight-and-narrow valley of town houses bearing north towards the glories of St Peter’s Street and the town’s all-upstaging middle.Photograph: Alamy View image in fullscreen ‘The mothership of England’s ecclesiastical fleet’ … Canterbury Cathedral. The Street Marshals are there to support those transiting through designated areas, and have been selected for their professionalism, communication skills and approachability.
