Canterbury Cathedral

The Precincts Canterbury CT1 2EH

Canterbury’s vast cathedral, mother church of the Anglican communion and seat of the archbishop, is not the most architecturally exciting structure. However, its size alone is impressive, and it is redolent of history and packed with fascinating corners. Check out, above all, the ancient crypt and the original wall paintings in the chapel of St Gabriel; the cloisters; and the many tombs, including those of Henry IV and the Black Prince. Most famous of all is The Martyrdom, marking the spot where Thomas Becket was murdered in 1170, sparking centuries of pilgrimage to Canterbury.
