Details

Ever wondered what it would be like to step back in time and experience the sights, sounds and smells of 14th century Eangland? At The Canterbury Tales you can do just that. Offering an excellent introduction to the city and its most famous literary connection Geoffrey Chaucer, England's finest poet, this popular centrally located attraction sets the scene of five of Chaucer's tales in an entertaining and informative way.

Groups can step back in time to join Chaucer and his merry band of pilgrims on their pilgrimage from The Tabard Inn to the shrine of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. Along the way their stories of love, romance, jealousy and trickery are vividly re-created with all the fun and excitement of the famous Tales. The Canterbury Tales is an audio guided attraction with translations available in French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and Japanese. A special commentary for children is also available.

We welcome visits from schools and groups and offer the following benefits to pre-booked groups of 15 or more people:
