Blogger’s Progress After Dark

Time and Tide wait for no man
Geoffrey Chaucer

Geoffrey_Chaucer_(17th_century)

It was a remarkably swift pilgrimage from Gatwick to Canterbury and we arrived after dark in this historical city, checking in to the very comfortable Canterbury Lodge on London Road.  The Unicorn

Heading for the city center in the drizzle, we quickly stumbled upon the first of many watering holes that Canterbury has to offer the weary traveller, The Unicorn in St. Dunstans Street. A fine half-timbered, 17th-century building and very welcoming hostelry.

The impressive Westgate, Canterbury

Moving on to Westgate, impressive even in the dark.  This medieval replacement of the Roman west gate was rebuilt around 1380 and the last survivor of Canterbury’s seven medieval gates.  Chaucer may have passed through this gate which stills stands proud by the River Stour.

Through Westgate and into the vibrant Peter Street, so close to our first glimpse of the mighty Cathedral and this just around the corner … The Christchurch Gate.  The entrance to the wonderful cathedral, an experience to enjoy another day.

Followed by a meal at the Old Buttermarket before ending up at The Black Griffin in St. Peter’s Street for open mic night.

A great introduction to Canterbury life after dark before sleeping like a baby on the best mattress ever at the Canterbury Lodge.
