Canterbury – Conrad 1

Canterbury Heritage Museum is housed in a building that dates from around 1200 when it was built as an almshouse for elderly, sick and poor priests. On display are Roman and Anglo Saxon artefacts, and information on mediaeval Canterbury, but what we enjoyed seeing the most was a reconstruction of Joseph Conrad’s study.

The Polish-born author lived for many years in various places in Kent, lastly at Bishopsbourne, a village which is about 6km southeast of Canterbury. On display are books, furniture and personal items from his study there.
