Postcard notes from a Concorde student - Part 1

The language school in Spain organised a trip to Canterbury (from 3rd March to 10th March 2019) for the school’s English students.

5th April 2019 — First of all, I would like to point out some features of this wonderful city located in the County of Kent (England). Canterbury lies on the river Stour, it is about 2,000 years old and the population is about 70,000. Moreover, it has the oldest boarding school in the world, the biggest city gate in Britain and the oldest church in the English speaking world. What is more, the first Cathedral to be built in England was built in Canterbury and the Cathedral, St Augustine´s Abbey and St Martin´s Church make up Canterbury´s World Heritage Sites. It is also important to mention that Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in the Cathedral and then it became an important pilgrimage centre. Furthermore, it has one of the most famous books written by Geoffrey Chaucer: “The Canterbury Tales”.

Personally, I think it was an amazing experience and there are several reasons for this. First, Canterbury is a fantastic city because it is a quiet place but at the same time, you can find many things to do, for instance: visit the museums and the historical sites like the Westgate Towers, The Canterbury Tales, Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine´s Abbey and so on. You can also walk in the city centre, which is car-free, and have a nice time shopping, eating out and going into the Canterbury historic river tours. In the evening, we could attend salsa lessons and had a nice time dancing.
