Brighton is located on the south coast of England and lies between the South Downs and the English Channel to the north and south respectively. The Sussex coast forms a wide, shallow bay between the headlands of Selsey Bill and Beachy Head.
The Lanes form a retail, leisure and residential area located near the sea front and is charecterised by narrow alleyways following the street pattern of the original fishing village. The Lanes contains mainly clothing shops, jewelers, restaurants and pubs. Brighton's main retail centre is the Churchill Square shopping centre which has over 80 shops, restaurants and parking for 1,600 cars.
Brighton has many important landmarks including The Royal Pavilion which is a former royal palace which was built as a home for the Prince Regent during the early 19th century. The construction of the palace was undertaken under the direction of architect John Nash. Other notable landmarks include Brighton Marine Palace and Pier (known as the Palace Pier) which opened in 1899. It contains a funfair, restaurants and arcade halls. The West Pier was built in 1866 and is one of only two Grade I listed piers in the UK but is closed to the public since 1975.
Located in the south east of England in the county of Kent, Canterbury is an historic city with its cathedral being the centre of the world wide Anglican Church. The cathedral, the oldest in England, dominates the city's skyline but there is more to Canterbury than its cathedral. The ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St martin's Church form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site. Canterbury is a small city and is best explored on foot. Walking trails or guided walks will help you make the most of your time here and to enjoy the winding lanes and streets, all with their own unique identity. Alternatively you may wish to relax and absorb the wonder of the city with a boat trip along the River Stour where will be able to appreciate Canterbury's finest and historical architecture set against outstanding, scenic views. The crystal clear waters of the Stour offer a home to ducks, swans, fish and other wildlife while the river banks have an array of bending willow trees and wild flowers. North of the city is the award winning Crab and Winkle Way which is mostly a traffic free, seven mile cycling and walking route based on an old railway line running between Canterbury and Whitstable. It's safe for children and provides a perfect place to picnic along the way in the heart of one of England's oldest forests.
