Michael and Pam's Travels Our European Motorhome Adventures and other Travels

Canterbury Again, England 2018 ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Date: 10th July 2018

Travelled:  51 kilometres from Sheerness to Canterbury, England

Visited: Canterbury

Stayed:  Canterbury, Old Dover Road P+R, ยฃ2.50 per day, with free bus, the usual facilities.  N51.26122, E01.10038

The wind has eased a little overnight and we slept well.  The morning is still grey, but no sign of rain.

After coffee and fruit we get the Hymer organised and make for the A2 and Canterbury.  That was a mistake !  The A2 is the local road running parallel with the M2 motorway, but the traffic is diabolical.  Just getting on to the A2 at Sittingbourne takes more than 30 minutes to negotiate one set of traffic lights.  The rest of the A2 was a battle and we were glad to see the P+R sign when we finally make Canterbury.

No point lingering, we find a good spot amongst the other 8 or so motorhomes and walk over to the bus stop.  You may remember we visited Canterbury last year, so we have no particular plan but a wander about.

The free P+R bus ride takes about 10 minutes and we walk into the old town.
There are lots of people about today. Bonus the sun has burnt off the cloud and the afternoon looks great.
Crossing the Great Stour on High Street Parade.

We spot a Cotswoldโ€™s camping shop and pop in to look for a small backpack, as we have decided we need one each.  Somehow we come out with new walking shoes for Pam as well !

Pam is in such a good mood, she authorises a pub lunch.  A couple of hundred metres off High Street, we find The Dolphin.  We walk in the place is empty, then notice the beer garden out the back.  What a great pub !

It was a long lunch and a few drinks in the sun.  Finding our way back to the bus stop was the next challenge.  Back in the Hymer only in the mood for a nap our day was done.
