Easy to reach by train from Dover or London
The city of Canterbury and its Cathedral, the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion, is both a holy place and part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Cathedral's history starts in 597AD and is most famous for the murder of its Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. Ever since, the Cathedral has attracted thousands of pilgrims, as told famously in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.
Today you can follow those pilgrims and soak up the atmosphere as you walk through the city's streets which still retain their medieval character.
I am qualified to provide specialist in-depth guided tours within the cathedral.
You may wish to time your day to take in the Evensong service (open to those of all faiths and none) at the Cathedral to gaze at the wondrous architecture whilst listening to some of the best choral music in the world.
If you are travelling from London or Dover by train, you will be met at Canterbury railway station. If you prefer to use a chauffeured car for the journey, please contact me for a customised tour itinerary.
We shall be visiting inside Canterbury cathedral, seeing St Martin's Church, St Thomas' church (and/or others upon request) and strolling through the medieval streets of Canterbury soaking up the atmosphere and history of this tiny city.

Dawn is incredibly knowledgeable about English history and culture. It was like having your favorite professor with you as you learn about the city, the literature, and the cathedral. Our group was already quite fluent in English history and she taught us so much! She arranged everything and made sure we saw those off the beaten path items that were special to our interests. Dawn was a perfect guide and we enthusiastically recommend her to others.
