The grounds outside were a good level of busy, families, students and older couples all milled around enjoying the surroundings. Lots of people had brought their cameras along to get a shot of Canterbury Cathedral against that sky.
It's huge! The whole thing just keeps going and going. Inside the atmosphere is wonderfully peaceful. Some Churches I find can be a wee bit stern or even intimidating to be in, but this one is an exception with a calm under-chatter of friends talking quietly to one another.
If you are visiting Canterbury make sure you put aside an hour or so for a visit. It might be a smidge busier on weekends but on this Monday afternoon there were no queues. Make sure you charge and pack your camera! Next time I'm going to bring along a picnic blanket and a book. The perfect place to relax and people watch.
