    Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest and most famous Christian structures in England and forms part of a World Heritage Site.

    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.
