Experience hosted by John

4 hours
Includes food, drinks
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

I will escort those who visit the city on a photographic tour introducing them to the city and its people, as well as some of the lesser known parts of the city, from The Dane John Gardens, and the Old Synagogue, as well as the Westgate Parks, and the Westgate Tower, Miller's Field, and the old Mill Streams, St Dunstans Street and the King's Mile as well as St Radigunds and the old Millers Arms.

The Tour is at night. As the sun sets the city's vibrancy changes, from bustling city to more chilled and tranquil, the time when the streets are deserted is an opportunity to capture the meaning of the city. To truly walk in the footsteps of Poets and Playwrights.

We will try out painting with light, and slow motion video, as well as time-lapse and long exposure, from different angles plus we will take you in some stunning shots which I will edit in my studio and send to you after the event.
Other things to note
A thirst for knowledge and a willingness to learn new skills and a sense of humour too at this tour is fun

I am a local resident, Historian, Author & City Guide, I have been taking beautiful photographs of the City of Canterbury for 40 years and have published many of them online and on social media. With a mix of humour and charm I can make even the dreariest English day into a day to remember, for all the right reasons.

I run both Day and Night time walking tours of Canterbury, Whitstable and Faversham.

A fun and informative nighttime photography tour around the streets of Canterbury. John was very knowledgeable on both the area and how to get the best shots at nighttime. He even assisted us amateurs with the best functions to use on our camera for each shot.
