Canterbury Cathedral

The cathedral forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site along with St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church and remains one of the most visited places in the country.

The mother church of the Anglican Community has a Romanesque crypt, 12th century quire, stained glass windows dating from the 12th/13th century and contains the tombs of Edward, the Black Prince as well as King Henry IV and his wife, Joan of Navarre. Canterbury's reputation as one of the most important pilgrimage destinations is undoubtedly linked with the martyrdom of its most famous Archbishop, Thomas Becket in 1170.

Today the Cathedral is still very much a working church with daily services, orchestral and choral concerts and special events. Please see the website for further information.
