Au programme

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.

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.

Le lieu

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 has an excellent knowledge of the local area and picks out details you would walk straight past and gives you a wonderful backstory to the rich history of Canterbury. The time flies as you explore the area and it was a great introduction to our first time in Canterbury

Definitely 2 hours well spent! John is very knowledgeable and gave insights into features of Canterbury we would never have heard of or noticed otherwise. His enthusiasm for historic detail is contagious and left us looking forward to reading up more about Canterbury’s architecture and its past. He also brings in great insights into the origins of phrases such as ‘slapdash’ which were fascinating.

We enjoy a tour to get our bearings when in a new city. John helped with this and the tour really did provide the hidden secrets of Canterbury. We felt safe from a Covid perspective as the group was small (6 of us in total) and John wore a mask. We advised John in advance that we needed to feed our baby a couple of times and he allowed stop offs to do so. Very informative, not just regarding Canterbury but also quirky facts about history and language more generally. Thanks John for a highlight of our break!

John's tour was the perfect introduction to Canterbury for us but covered so much more than the history of this amazing city. John's a true polymath but wears his knowledge lightly and delivers it with a great sense of humour. Highly recommended - made our day in Canterbury so special.

We really really enjoyed our afternoon in spite of the terrible weather. John worked very hard to make it an enjoyable experience. He was a true thespian and a great entertainer.
