"Cathedral" Cathedral Tip by Italianmanboy
Cathedral, Canterbury: 71 reviews and 119 photos
A visit to Canterbury is not complete without visiting the Cathedral. Me and my brother spent about an hour going around and were astonished by the beauty, the lasting Gothic architecture and the tranquility of one of the world's oldest cathedrals. I understand a little of the history is this:- The Cathedral's history goes back to 597AD when St Augustine, sent by Pope Gregory the Great as a missionary, established his seat (or 'Cathedra') in Canterbury. In 1170 Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in the Cathedral and ever since, the Cathedral has attracted thousands of pilgrims, as told famously in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.
