Calling all East Kent Folks - Help Needed
#1
When in Argentina I met an American guy and offered to show him some sights in the UK if he ever made it over. Well he did, and he is staying in Canterbury this week.

Anybody got any suggestions of some typically British Kentish things to do? Specifically in the Canterbury area.

My only ideas so far are Broadstairs as I know it well.

He doesnt MTB.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

cathedral, trip down the river stour in a punt, an evening in the Cuban bar, Moroccan restaurant (not kentish but it's nice), gulbenkian theatre at uni (often good films / stand up / plays but can be a bit niche) whitstable oyster festival in a couple of weeks. Shepherd neame brewery tour, never done that but might be interesting. Dover castle and hidden wartime tunnels is interesting if he's got transport. Broadstairs folk week's a month off still which is a bit sucky. Take him on a sketchy ride at blean, no lights needed at the mo?

What he said. Whitstable is a favourite haunt of mine too. Cathedral is a must, Roman museam kills half an hour too

Broadstairs or some sort of coastal harbour, +1 for the castles as thats about as british as you can get i guess. Must have fish and chips while here and maybe a good british carvery.

St Margarets bay between deal and dover, very pretty secluded beach with a nice seafood restaurant, or get naked at Sandwich?
