Overview of your Canterbury tour:

Canterbury is a place very close to my heart. I've lived here for over 20 years and as a child would visit as a treat. It is now my privilege to guide people here. This is a tour of contrasts combining the awe inspiring cathedral with its charming medieval city. At its centre is the Cathedral, what a history! A World Heritage Site, which has its beginnings back in 597AD & now the mother church of the Anglican community across the world. We'll explore the exquisite architecture reflecting styles spanning 400 years. We'll get up close to treasures such as the beautiful stained glass, including the famous "miracle windows" completed by 1220. We'll listen to stories surrounding the powerful characters who have influenced it, notably Thomas Becket murdered in his own cathedral. We'll follow in the footsteps of pilgrims, Kings and Queens who have visited. Our attention now turns to the quirky streets of Canterbury are great fun to take a wander. I'll regale you with stories at every twist and turn of the way.
