it's basically Stepford with a cathedral
lots of places to eat and drink, very big student population, quite pretty, can't imagine there being too much violence besides the odd pub brawl on a Saturday. I've spent a couple of weekends there with a friend and liked it.
the shit kicked out of me by random boy racers once. it was very late though, and i don't think they were local.
thinking about it, quite a few people got the shit kicked out of them. probably one of the downsides to being in the student population of any town i guess.
it's okay. i'd have probably liked to have gone somewhere a little more exciting for uni. there are only 2 clubs iirc, as they've got some weird licensing law where anything with in the city walls is under cathedral jurisdiction and not allowed to open late. it's got a decent little record shop though (richard's records), a good place for second hand vinyl/videos (the indoor market), couple of decent clothes shops. the university cinema is good too.
since i left, they massively expanded the high street too, i'm not sure what's there, but visited once since, and it looked a lot more cosmopolitan and more like a city than it used to.
some nice parks too.
and caterbury is nice and twee. I like it.
im a fuckin' geenyus
