About This Book

Did you know? The ‘Crab and Winkle’ (Canterbury—Whitstable) line was the world’s first scheduled passenger rail service, and the first railway to issue a season ticket. If you were to stay at Sudbury Tower at night, you may just find yourself being tucked in by the spectre of ‘Simon of Sudbury’. There is no evidence that Geoffrey Chaucer, author of Canterbury Tales, ever visited the city. A fascinating city dating from the first century AD when the Romans built a town, Canterbury is well known for its grand buildings, world-famous cathedral and possibly England’s oldest school. Canterbury: A Pocket Miscellany explores the unseen side of this amazing city and will earn a place on any Canterbury-lover’s bookshelf.
