- The Westgate is a medieval gatehouse in Canterbury. A 60ft high western gate of the city wall is the largest surviving city gate in England. Built of Kentish ragstone around 1379, it is the last survivor of Canterbury’s seven medieval gates, still well-preserved.

In 597AD St Augustine established his seat (or ‘Cathedra’) in Canterbury after being sent by Pope Gregory the Great as a missionary. In 1170 Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in the Cathedral and ever since, the Cathedral has attracted thousands of pilgrims, as told famously in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
