Discover England’s First Cathedral

With new visitor activities, a major new exhibition, and ‘Kids go Free’ until 31 December 2023*, there’s never been a better time to discover Canterbury Cathedral – UNESCO World Heritage Site, seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and resting place of saints and royalty.

Whether admiring the medieval stained glass windows – including the oldest in Britain -  marveling at carved tombs, seeking out dragons and grotesques, or exploring the Cathedral’s stunning Cloisters and green spaces, there’s plenty to do. You might even be lucky enough to spot the peregrine falcons that sometimes make the Cathedral their home.

A major new exhibition tells the complex story of Church-State relations and allows you to explore up close, for the first time, unique artefacts including The Black Prince’s shield, and a grant from one of Thomas Becket’s murderers.

Book now at for a day out 1,400 years in the making!
