Trip Report Canterbury and Dover -- a weekend in Kent

Jump to last reply

We enjoyed our brief visit to Kent and Canterbury and Dover specifically. Photos and commentary on my blog:

http://ukfrey.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/canterbury-and-dover-weekend-in-kent.html

The usual suspects: family of 4 (DD13, DS10); US expats living in Derby, UK (we drove).

Lodging: Bluebells Guesthouse Canterbury

Two rooms, 2 nights for £270. Great host and delicious breakfast. B&B was about a mile (20 minutes walk) from the Cathedral.

Food: both excellent

Deeson's -- excellent British cuisine. Drinks plus 2 starters, 3 mains, 1 dessert for £88. (Not cheap, but not outrageous. I guess it is all relative, but we were more than happy with the value).

Pinocchio's, -- Italian. Similarly drinks plus 1 starter, 4 mains, 2 desserts for £82.

Would recommend both.

Visited the Cathedral, Heritage Museum, Dover Castle and took a walk along the cliffs. See the blog link for details.
