Canterbury General Information

The seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury and central node of the City of Canterbury is a lovely town on the River Stour in the county of Kent, England. As the most venerable episcopal see in the country, with roots in the late 6th century, Canterbury is the spiritual home of the Church of England and worldwide community of Anglican Christians.

The obvious, inescapable point of interest to invest some time in then, is grand Canterbury Cathedral. A place of near-incomparable lore, the Cathedral is where former Archbishop Thomas Becket was slain in 1170. Anglican faithful consider the Mother Church a holy shrine and indeed, Geoffrey Chaucer famously wrote about the Canterbury pilgrimage in his classic epic The Canterbury Tales. Together with the ancient Church of Saint Martin and ruins of Saint Augustine’s Abbey, Canterbury Cathedral is a vital UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town of 45,000 people has sage academic icons as well, from the King’s School to the University of Kent. The Egyptian Revival Old Synagogue at Canterbury is in the Music Room of the former, while the university campus makes for a fine stroll. Other important points of interest range from the ruins of Canterbury Castle to the Roman Museum, Saint Martin’s Mill to the superb new Marlowe Theatre. Excellent events in town include the eminent Canterbury Festival, Lounge on the Farm and cricket contests at Saint Lawrence Ground.
