Canterbury Tips

Canterbury Cathedral - we were very impressed by the Sung Eucharist at 11am in the Cathedral. Awe-inspiring though the cathedral is at any time, it really becomes sublime when you hear the choir voices soaring up into the vaulted roof - Margaret
Canterbury has been a European pilgrimage site of major importance for over 800 years since the assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. Today it is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in England. The medieval city centre bustles with famous name stores and exclusive boutiques while the picturesque side streets are home to smaller specialist shops, pubs and restaurants.
Canterbury's corner of the county of Kent (the "Garden of England") is rich in charming villages and glorious countryside, which is easy to explore by car, bicycle or public transport - Silas, resident
