On Saturday afternoon, after steaming cups of tea, coffee and hot chocolate at Refectory Kitchen, I and a group of other local judges set out for a walk around the city with the team from Canterbury BID to judge the first of what promises to be a cracking annual Christmas window competition, with shops, businesses and restaurants all over the city getting into the holiday spirit with some rather creative window displays.

The Canterbury BID team and I thought that our little walking tour of the city to do the judging would also be the perfect excuse to show you all around how beautiful our lovely little historic City looks at Christmas time. Nothing beats the magic of Canterbury in December with all of the Medieval shop fronts lit up with twinkly lights, the Cathedral Christmas tree shining through the gates, and the cobbled High Street illuminated by the glow spilling out of the shops.
