    Description: Despite devastating bomb damage during the Second World War, Canterbury offers visitors a wonderful mix of 2,000 years of history within the framework of a modern city. Millions of visitors come every year to experience the rare flavour of its ancient streets and buildings, and to visit its spectacular cathedral. It was here in 1170 that Norman knights struck down and killed Archbishop Thomas Becket; pilgrims have travelled to the site ever since, bringing prosperity to the city for centuries. But the cathedral and its precincts are just one of the treasures that bring people to the city: with its links to literary greats including Christopher Marlowe, Geoffrey Chaucer and Charles Dickens - and even Rupert Bear! - plus a host of wonderful museums to explore, there is much to discover and enjoy in Canterbury.

Description: Canterbury is a colourful and cosmopolitan city that manages to combine a rich and often dramatic history with a vibrant contemporary feel. You'll find no better illustration of this coming together of the old and the new than in the city's diverse variety of pubs. From old hostelries of genuine antiquity through to battered old backstreet boozers, and from cutting edge brew-pubs to craft beer bars, the cathedral city really does offer something for everyone. People have been enjoying the hospitality offered by Canterbury's many watering holes since before the city was immortalised by Chaucer back in the fourteenth century. Today that reputation continues as a teeming mix of locals, students, tourists and modern day pilgrims look to quench their thirst. From bustling alehouses that maintain a live music scene echoing the Canterbury sound of the late 1960s, through to traditional taverns offering a more sedate atmosphere redolent of a seemingly bygone age, this book will guide you through the city's unique pub landscape.
