A castle, Canterbury and cliffs

3 06 2011

We took one day on our trip to London and Paris to get out of the big city and see something else in England. I’ve always been in awe of the famous White Cliffs of Dover, and though I didn’t get as close to them as I wanted, at least I saw them.

First was a stop at Leeds Castle. A real castle with a moat.

Then off to Canterbury to tour the famous cathedral and walk through the walled city. Wasn’t feeling the lunch spot suggested to us so we did McDonalds instead. So American of us.

The cathedral was beautiful. Such great architecture.

And finally, the White Cliffs of Dover. One of the natural wonders of the world. And a stop on the Dover city beach that faces the English Channel. You could see all the way to France because it was a clear day.
