We’re nearing the end of a couple of days of sightseeing in beautiful Canterbury. Like Cambridge, Canterbury is overrun with history and tourists. But Canterbury has a better scale than Cambridge. It’s a town that isn’t trying to be everything all at once, as Cambridge is prone to be. And the place appears to have more independence about it – it is not the exclusive domain of national and multinational chains – be they cafes, restaurants or bookshops. It’s quirky to Cambridge’s predictability.
We’re staying in the elegant Abode Hotel which is slap-bang in the centre of town, and have enjoyed the Cathedral….
…and the local Sewing Machine repair shop.
