Choosing a 2nd city in England

Jump to last reply

Hi all. I'll be in London for a week in September, (and possibly Prague) for photography. I was interested in hopping on a train and seeing an English city that had as many of these as possible:

- half timber framed buildings
- red phone booths
- glorious town square
- canal or river going through the city if possible
- city clock
- magnificent cathedral that helps define the city
- stark contrast to London
- as close to London as possible.

Currently I'm deciding between Canterbury and Chester. Chester is quite a bit farther, just a little too far to justify a 2+ hour train ride. I'm not interested in Bath, Cambridge, or Oxford so thank you in advance. If anyone can think of somewhere that ticks off several of the above please let me know! Thanks
