The city of Canterbury is a 15-minute drive away and a visit to the magnificent cathedral, a UNESCO world heritage site, is a must. There is plenty of shopping on offer and a great choice of restaurants and cafes which give this mediaeval city a continental vibe. A great way to spend a sunny afternoon is to take a punt ride on the river Stour or stroll through the Franciscan Gardens, there is so much to discover and explore.
