England’s celebrated pilgrimage city is home to one of the finest Gothic cathedrals in the world.
Canterbury Cathedral soars into the sky, its imposing vaulting and fine stained glass inspiring awe and admiration in equal measure. It is the burial place for King Henry IV and the fearsome 14th century royal warrior known as the ‘Black Prince’, but its hallowed stones will forever be associated with the martyrdom of Archbishop Thomas Becket, marked today with a single, eternally lit candle on the very spot where he was killed in 1169.
Beyond the cathedral is a charming city, with medieval streets and river to go boating on. Let your qualified guide take you on a fun and informative “pilgrimage” through the mother city of the Anglican Church.
