Det skal I lave

The Tour is based on the History of the City, and its architecture it also covers several aspects of English Language, and the origins of phrases we take for granted. The duration is around 2 hours, and it's a gentle walking pace around the city. Canterbury's history stretched back over the millennia, from pre-Roman settlement to the present day city bustling with visitors, students, and locals alike. The footsteps of Pilgrims, and parsons, are etched into its fabric and the tour takes you in their footsteps. The tour is fully accessible for anyone in a wheelchair or with mobility issues, which given my work with the elderly I feel it's important to be inclusive. You will not find this tour in any guide book. All content is exclusive to this tour.
Please note under 14 Year-olds will be admitted 'free of charge', but must be accompanied by a full paying adult, unaccompanied children will not be admitted.
Re Parking and transport questions please use the online messenger and I can help with where to park, walking directions, bus routes and or rail routes. I am only a message away and ready to help answer any questions you may have.
The Meeting Point is right by the Canterbury Christchurch Gate, signposted from all over the city, no more than 10 minutes walk from all the car parks and the city stations.
Other things to note
As it's a walking tour, on city streets, just be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and be sure to dress for the English Climate, i.e. on a sunny day bring an umbrella, just in case.

I have been conducting both day and night time tours in the city of Canterbury since 1991, although my background is in Hotel Management, my ethos is always about putting my clients first. I am a writer and producer, and also volunteer for the Blind and Older people, to help them with everyday life. I live within a mile of the city centre and can offer tours at short notice, so if you're staying and need to book me just call me and I'll be there.

Her skal du være

Canterbury's history stretches back over the millenia, from pre-roman settlement to the present day city bustling with visitors, students, and locals alike. The footsteps of Pilgrims, and parsons, are etched into its fabric and the tour takes you in their footsteps. Starting in the Buttermarket, we trace the name of the city of Canterbury, and its place in English History, from St Augustine's arrival in 597 to the Saxon Churches, and the Normans.

John is a fun and kind person to be with. He kindly tailored a suitable time for the tour at 530 pm only for me. He is very knowledgeable about history and language. He is like a walking encyclopedia. He knows most of the words and their origin. It was a very informative tour and he will point to you things to look at that you would have certainly missed on your own.

John is a jovial, at times ironic or even cynical, walking history encyclopaedia! His short - in distance, not in time or content - tour of the hidden treasures of Canterbury was fascinating, intriguing, entertaining, educational and soooo much more. We are very glad we booked and that it did not necessitate walking miles. Highly recommended!

John was an excellent tour guide for our trip around Canterbury. His knowledge of the city was great, and he also provided several anecdotes and insights along the way. The tour was a good pace and we had a really great morning! Thanks so much John!

John is amazingly knowledgeable and entertaining, plus, he was more than happy to accommodate our dog in the visit. I particularly loved the insights about English idioms and curious words. Highly recommended!

John seemed to be a real knowledgeable character, dates and details of historical events were aplenty, almost too much to take in. Lots of humour and anecdotes. A fun and interesting way to spend a morning. Thank you, John...fudge was a nice surprise too!
