The drive to Canterbury was delayed by traffic snarls. The walking tour itself was good and we enjoyed the commentary. We were given an hour of free time which was great for those wanting to pay to go into the cathedral but for those of us that didn't want to see another church, there wasn't much to do bin town unless you wanted to shop.

If you haven't been there GO! Worth the trip even if you think you are "churched-out". (London is far away and best seen when a few days can be devoted.)
