Walked Upstreet to Canterbury along the Stour Way and enjoyed the well-marked and varied walk. Good transport links.

My husband and I have just taken up cycling and this is a lovely route for those who like a reasonably flat and pretty route. It follows the Stour river and runs through lovely meadows. We only go as far as Chartham (there is a lovely pub -The Artichoke) to stop and recover before our return.

3 miles from Canterbury to Chartham. Pick up the trail in the Westgate gardens, and do your health some good. Along the river all the way, and enjoy the countryside and the views. Train back is hourly and costs £3.30 each. In Chartham there is not much apart from the Artichoke pub which is basic but welcoming.

We parked at Chartham Village Hall and walked three miles into Canterbury, popped into a cafe for a snack and then returned along the picturesque River Stour. The river is a natural chalk stream and contains trout and pike but is a private fishing venue. Along the way, we passed several lakes and a very well equipped children's play park so this walk is perfect for a family with children that can walk far enough. We will definitely try it again in the summer, when I'm sure it will be full of wildlife.
