Canterbury is one of United Kingdoms most well-preserved towns. It is not that big but has a sizable and important background. Situated about 1 hour drive from London, the town itself is quite stunning. It is famous for it's spectacular houses, beautiful city center, and for the Cathedral which is reowned for being one of the oldest in England.
The little city is very enjoyable, friendly people, lovely tone, but the prices are a bit high. Accesible and easy to get around, it is not difficult to find some fine shops and restaurants, which makes the municipality even better.
In spite of it's size, the location has utterly much to offer.
