Location: Harkness Drive is a quiet residential road in Canterbury. The City of Canterbury, with its world-famous cathedral (a unesco world heritage site) has a pleasantly unexpected cosmopolitan feel to it. The city lies on the River Stour and boasts two universities plus several other higher education institutions and colleges which contributes to the city having the highest student to permanent resident ratio in the UK. However, Canterbury remains a small city in terms of geographical size and population when compared with other British cities. A popular tourist destination, historical Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom, with the city’s economy heavily reliant upon tourism. The city is home to many ancient structures including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey and a Norman castle, and the oldest extant school in the world, the King’s School. Modern additions include the St Lawrence Ground, home of the Kent County Cricket Club and the Marlowe Theatre, named after the city’s famous son Christopher Marlowe, has been built on the river bank.
