We arrived in London early in the afternoon of Monday 22 April 2018 after a 27-hour trip from Brisbane with a rushed 30-minute stopover in Abu Dhabi and were met by Leslie our chauffeur, who drove us to the Victoria Hotel in Canterbury. In the afternoon we walked into the town centre along narrow cobblestoned streets which were full of students due to the University. We visited the World Heritage listed Canterbury Cathedral and walked around the remains of the wall that once encircled the town. We then had dinner at The Corner House, which was lovely.
On Tuesday we picked up our new motorhome which is going to be our home for the next 6 months. We spent the next two days outfitting our van with groceries and essentials and finally headed off on Thursday mid-morning to Stratford-upon-Avon driving through showers.
