On our way down to Dover to catch the ferry, we decided to stop off and have a look at Canterbury in Kent. It was Sunday and busy with shoppers. The new bit looked OK, with normal high street shops, but the old bit was my favourite bit. There are lots of narrow cobbled streets to explore.
I took this photo to remind myself to recreate this at home for my kitchen. I thought the chilli plant looked great in an old olive oil can.
The older squares were very pretty and well used by the looks of things.
This is the gateway to the Cathedral.
It was pretty detailed and very spectacular.
The Cathedral looks as if it is having a lot of work done on the stonework and old oak doors.
It stands well against a perfect blue sky.
We spotted a recognisable figure amongst the statues.
I love a decent cloister and these did not disappoint!
You may need to double click to see this, but this window shows current members of our Royal Family - I loved this.
It was lovely to wander around and stretch our legs after a long journey.
My dad used to have an Uncle called Frank who had really bad eyes. When my mum see's something wonky, she still says "I bet Uncle Frank built that".
The river runs through the centre of the older part of town - you can have boat trips on here.
I'll have to plan a longer visit around Canterbury next time. There is certainly plenty to see and do.
