Trip to Canterbury

So, last weekend, I went to the lovely town of Canterbury. The town has some historic significance- it is where Thomas Beckett is held as a saint, for his accidental killing by King Henry 6th, and his religious stance on England.

This is the opening entrance to the library which is dedicated to Thomas Beckett:

The lovely town also had quite a few bookshops-ironically, I was wearing this badge for the duration of the weekend:

The town is also quite old- this library was built in 1889..and is still used to day. It’s quite a large building ; this photograph only shows a tiny proportion.

Outside the library, There was also this very cheap ice cream cart:

And, the town has quite a big emphasis on food- particularly cake. These were just some of my favorite handmade designs:

There was also a really nice fudge shop near the Cathedral- they gave free samples, and the people serving were just so nice. This is the outside picture :

We bought one slap of vanilla fudge- quite a chunky slice as well! You could even get some drinking fudge- there was even chilli flavour.. this was the bag (with fudge inside) :
