"Porlock! thy verdant vale so fair to sight,
Thy lofty hills which fern and furze imbrown,
The waters that roll musically down
Thy woody glens, the traveller with delight...." Robert Southey ... Porlock
The religious capital of Britain, Canterbury stood in the central stage of an often turbulent history. The centuries saw repeated sacking by the Danes, the Dissolution of the Monasteries and targeting by the Baedeker Raids, the infamous Nazi plan to obliterate Britain's historic sites. Despite the turbulence, Canterbury survived and is now home to one of Britain's Unesco World Heritage Sites.
Perched upon a cliff top protecting the medieval road to the Highlands, Stirling Castle has witnessed some of the most important events in Scotland's history. Second only to Edinburgh Castle in popularity, there is so much to see here that a visit warrants a good half a day.
