In Medieval England, it became one of the most important destinations for pilgrimages and was a centre of religious and political importance. Now home to the Archbishop of Canterbury it remains an important centre of the Anglican Church.

It is a busy tourist centre thanks to the infamy of Chaucer’s Canterbury tales and the martyrdom of Thomas Beckett. Nowadays, alongside its Roman Walls, Abbey and Castle remains you will find a theatre, a university and a cricket club serving the population of just over 55,000.
