Canterbury is a historic English cathedral city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, which lies at the heart of the City of Canterbury, a local government district of Kent, England. Popular historic sites such as Beachy Head and Ickworth are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Canterbury: Dover Castle (in Dover), St Margaret-at-Cliffe (in St Margaret's Bay) and The Hawking Centre (in Doddington). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Old Town Hastings, steep yourself in history at Smallhythe Place, pause for some serene contemplation at Long Melford Church, and look for all kinds of wild species at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.

If you are flying in from Iceland, the closest major airports are London Stansted Airport, London Gatwick Airport, Southend Airport and London City Airport. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
