Canterbury Cathedral Kent England GB UK Europe


Visit magnificent Canterbury cathedral, now a UNESCO world heritage site, the first cathedral to be established in the country back in the 6th century.

Follow in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims who visited after the treacherous murder of Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. Admire the exquisite “Miracle Windows”, stories in stained glass, and the breath taking gothic architecture wrought by the hands of master masons.

There is much more to see in this gem of a city. Take a guided walk to plumb its depths. Hear about the many literary links- with Geoffrey Chaucer who wrote the famous “Canterbury Tales” and the Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe.

 Wander the maze of medieval streets which form the heart of the city where charming buildings abound, built from local flint, stone and clay. Perhaps then it’s time to drop into one of the delightful inns, cafés or restaurants to taste local produce from the Garden of England. Make sure you leave time to explore the towns and villages nearby, rich in stunning landscape whether coast or countryside.
