When visiting Canterbury, one should always visit the Canterbury Roman Museum which is underground at the level of the Roman town. The Museum houses excavated objects, authentic reconstruction & the preserved remains of a Roman town house. Reconstructions include a Roman market place with a shoemaker, fabric seller and fruit and vegetable stall. There is also part of a house with its kitchen set out in authentic details. The impressive pillared entrance is in Butchery Lane and very close to the Cathedral. Other museums worth a visit include the Canterbury West Gate Museum with panoramic views from the battlements. Also the Canterbury Heritage Museum, which tells Canterbury’s story from Roman times to Rupert Bear, and the Royal Museum and Art Gallery which houses the city’s picture collection and the Buffs’ Regimental Museum.
