Like Chaucer’s pilgrims to Caunterbury we wende. And what tales Canterbury has to tell. Tales writ in the ancient cathedral towering moodily over the nearby pubs and shops. Tales gleaned from half-timbered, white-washed little houses lining narrow streets. Tales borne by the river Stour swabbling past brilliant flowerbeds and under arching stone bridges. In Canterbury we enter another world… we step into mediaeval history.
And look, the getting there itself – faster than a speeding bullet! – couldn’t be more special. We take the Javelin High-Speed Train, the only super-high-speed train line in the country. It’s whoosh! and we’re there.

WANT A PRIVATE TOUR TO CANTERBURY?
If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Canterbury trips do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Canterbury Excursion – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your wishes and requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.
GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS
A private tour makes a very special, thoughtful, unusual gift. Be it a birthday or anniversary or graduation or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.
