Your Canterbury guide

Amidst the serene landscapes of Kent's countryside, Canterbury beckons travellers with its rich historical legacy. As a revered spiritual hub, the city is anchored by the majestic Canterbury Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site symbolising medieval splendour and profound religious significance. Beyond its religious prominence, Canterbury charms visitors with its quaint medieval architecture, meandering riverbanks, and picturesque cobblestone streets, inviting exploration through centuries of captivating history and culture. The city's vibrant cultural scene, featuring art galleries, theatres, and live music venues, ensures a lively atmosphere throughout the year, while its bustling markets and artisanal shops offer endless opportunities for delightful discoveries. Moreover, Canterbury's idyllic surroundings, including the tranquil River Stour and scenic countryside, provide a haven for outdoor enthusiasts seeking relaxation and rejuvenation amidst natural beauty. With its timeless charm and warm hospitality, Canterbury promises an unforgettable journey for travellers seeking to immerse themselves in the magical ambiance of this historic city.

Canterbury is beloved by many! Here are three reasons why:

  1. Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - Canterbury is famously associated with Geoffrey Chaucer's literary masterpiece, “The Canterbury Tales.’ The collection of stories, written in the late 14th century, centres around a group of pilgrims as they journey to the shrine of Thomas Becket located in Canterbury Cathedral.
  2. Thomas Becket - Canterbury Cathedral is also known for its association with Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury who was murdered in the cathedral in 1170. His shrine became a major pilgrimage site, and his martyrdom has been immortalised in literature, art, and film.
  3. Canterbury Punting - Similar to Cambridge, punting on the River Stour is a popular activity in Canterbury. Visitors can hire punts and glide along the tranquil river, enjoying views of the city's historic buildings and lush greenery.
