Situated at the heart of the County of Kent, on the eastern tip of the British coastline, Canterbury is one of the most ancient cities in England. With its illustrious cathedral, its St. Augustine's Abbey and its St. Martin's Church which are listed as World Heritage Sites, it proudly preserves distinct medieval attractions. Welcome to the kingdom of large sculpted vessels, gothic cloisters and master builders of cathedrals where the Caen stone has been put to the service of light forever. But to sum up Canterbury by its majestic buildings would mean failing to recognise this endearing city in more than one respect. With its picturesque streets, its select boutiques in half-timbered houses, its refined restaurants and its authentic pubs where the traditional pint is taken after leaving the office, Canterbury has managed to combine its charm of bygone days with an irresistible, "so British" spirit. Calm, cultivated and elegant, this magnificent city, a large part of which is pedestrianised, will allow you to free yourself of the usual stress and learn English in total tranquility. With its undulating hills, its wooded valleys, its orchards and its vineyards which run as far as beside the sea, the surrounding countryside is very justly nicknamed "the garden of England". The central location of Canterbury will also be the opportunity to discover some of the numerous treasures of the region, including the oyster fishing town of Whitstable, seaside resort pleasures in Broadstairs, a bath of culture and history in the medieval town of Sandwich or at Leeds Castle, one of the most beautiful in the kingdom. For those who couldn't manage to do without urban hustle and bustle, there is nothing to fear. London is only 90 minutes away by train. You will return from Canterbury with solid language acquisition and certainly under the charm of this exceptional region.
