Canterbury is a perfect day trip from central London. The history is unending, and the STAINED GLASS WINDOWS are supreme. The Cathedral is identified with the death of Thomas Beckett and the Canterbury Tales by Chaucer. The town of Canterbury is ancient with ancient lanes which have been incorporated into the modern town. When the Hydrofoil used to come to the south coast of England at Dover from France, we stopped in Canterbury for a bite to eat and to wander through the cathedral. I became acquainted with the Cathedral and admired its great history and imposing windows and architecture. Again, when I was in college, I wrote a paper on Somerset Maugham, highlighting his Canterbury ties–youth, school, and death. Last year, Mrs. Moore and I went to Canterbury with our friend Maureen Walker when I could enjoy the cathedral with older, better trained eyes and greater knowledge about medieval architecture. It is like reading the same great novel several times during your life; it is so different each time as we grow older and a bit wiser. CANTERBURY, A DAY TRIP FROM LONDON: Perfect!
