Canterbury is a city in the east of Kent and in the south-east of England. A busy and beautiful city, Canterbury has been occupied since the Neolithic period, and was occupied by the Romans, including a theatre, temple, forum and public baths. After the decline of the Roman Empire, Canterbury was converted to Christianity by Saint Augustine, and in the Victorian period became a centre for the processing of silk. Modern-day Canterbury is a fantastic place to live which can offer something to everyone- even wandering through the picturesque streets is a treat in and of itself! Those who need a little more to occupy themselves will have plenty to do. History buffs can visit the city's Cathedral, Roman Museum or take a ghost tour, whilst those who enjoy the great outdoors can visit one of its many green spaces, including Dane John Gardens. Shoppers will delight in the range of wonderful independent and high-street shops scattered throughout the city, whilst foodies can enjoy the fantastic fare on offer in the city's many restaurants. The sportily-inclined can enjoy any one of the city's many gyms or leisure centres. Young families, meanwhile, will be pleased with the range of excellent schools in the area, whilst young professionals can enjoy a commute to London in just an hour.
