Canterbury day trip

Jump to last reply

I'm traveling with my parents to London for a few days in early November. We're interested in visiting Canterbury as a day trip from London, esp now that the high-speed train cuts travel time to just about 1 hour.

The earliest off-peak train we can take is at 9:37am, which will get us to Canterbury at 10:38am. Sunset in early November is around 16:30, so we will have approx 5.5 hours there.

Here are my plans for the day trip:

Visit Canterbury Cathedral upon arrival. Possibly 1 hour there?
Lunch
Canterbury Roman Museum
+/- Canterbury Tales? (I know it's kind of kitschy, but think it'll be fun? or should we not bother?)
Wander around medieval walls and walk around town
Depart

[St Augustine's Abbey is only open on weekends, but we can only go during the week.]

Are there other must-sees? Or any suggestions/comments? Recommendation for lunch (we eat anything)?
