After a few weeks of Taiwan food articles, I'm sure you're getting a bit sick and tired of looking at food, food, and not thing but food articles. So here we are again, back in the UK. Since I'm sort of overlapping Taiwan and UK articles, I feel obliged to remind you again that this was my second time to Canterbury. The first time round, I took a lot of time in museums and the cathedral itself. Because time was a valuable asset, I had to be selective of what I did. Since I was lucky enough to come back for a second visit, I decided to try things that I did not try the first time round. This river tour, was one of them.
On the High Street of Canterbury, you'll see people shouting out to tourist luring them to do the boat tour. If you want to know a bit more before you decide, don't feel intimidated, approach them and enquire all you want. It's not like in some Asian countries where they would be really aggressive when you approach them, then get really offended when you decide to leave. If you decide to do the boat tour, the place to board is actually the back of this restaurant. However, don't just walk into the front entrance! That entrance is reserved for people who are dining at the restaurant!
You will be shown a way through an alley, where you can then get to the back garden of the restaurant.

因為這條河，所以坎特伯里有非常多橋 Because a river runs through it, there are lots of bridges here.

It was a very relaxing tour. If you feel like taking it easy, it's a nice way of killing some time (softly).
