Details

Ever wondered what it would be like to step back in time and experience the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone era? A visit to the Canterbury Tales, one of Kent's most popular attractions, with its stunning reconstruction of 14th century England, you can do just that.

Inside the historic building of St Margaret's Church you can journey back over 500 years to join Geoffrey Chaucer (England's finest poet) and his colourful characters on their magical pilgrimage from London 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 Chaucer's famous tales. Steeped in the rich history of this medieval city, at the Canterbury Tales you really can visit another world.

The Canterbury Tales is a stunningly accurate recreation of medieval life. With a combination of live costumed characters and entertaining audio guides, it provides an excellent introduction to the city and its famous literary connection.
