For incomparable heritage explore the medieval city of Canterbury. Discover the excellent range of shops, restaurants, museums and other attractions, including the spectacular Cathedral forming part of the city's UNESCO World Heritage Site.
England's oldest Parish Church is still regularly used for Christian worship as it has been for over 1,400 years. It was here that St Augustine worshipped in 597AD with his 40 companions until King Ethelbert granted him the land for the abbey and the cathedral which, with St Martin's, now form the Canterbury World Heritage Site.
