Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury

Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury

Founded in 597 AD by the Benedictine monk Augustine of Canterbury, under the papal authority of Pope Gregory the Great, the magnificent cathedral of Canterbury stands amongst the oldest in the UK.

With over 1 million visitors each year, the cathedral represents part of Canterbury’s World Heritage Site, together with the Church of St. Martin and the Abbey of St. Peter and Paul.

The church remains an active part of life in the community and its surroundings, hosting services and special events on a regular basis. Don’t miss the Choral Evensong sung daily by the choir of young choristers and lay clerks who continue a musical tradition that has spanned over 1,400 years. The cathedral is also one of the many venues to host performances during the annual international Canterbury Festival of the arts.

Check visiting hours to ensure a special audio or guided tour where you can learn more about the cathedral’s fascinating history, including the infamous murder of Thomas Beckett. View the beautiful stained glass pieces and glimpse the behind-the-scenes operations.
