Okay, as a last minute organised trip, I am off on a road trip tomorrow with my partner. Weather possibly isn't ideal (late PM showers predicted....but who actually knows!) but we need to get away, so are taking the chance anyway.
At this stage, our only requirement is that we need to be in Canterbury, Kent by late pm (4/6pm ish). We have already been to Canterbury several times and have seen the Cathedral and sights that it has to offer, so are not bothered by arriving late. We are staying with a friend, so no hotels or accommodation to worry about either.
But....we would like to see some nice sights along the way, and I was just wondering if anyone had some itinerary suggestions?
I was thinking perhaps a detour via Brighton (weather isn't quite 'beach' but I don't mind). Then either up to Hastings and Dover, then Canterbury? Or is there a better option?
We haven't done much on this side of England, normally catching the National Express so our route isn't flexible.
Hope someone out there can assist with some good ideas, or other sights in this area that we shouldn't miss!
Oh, and on Sunday, we are planning on going from Canterbury to Leeds Castle, and need to be back in London by late evening, 9pm. I assume that more can be done on this day as well, but we'll probably just take Sunday as it comes and not plan it too much, keen not to make it too 'rigid' an itinerary.
Thanks in advance!
