"Visit Canterbury Cathedral" Cathedral Tip by Herkbert
Cathedral, Canterbury: 71 reviews and 119 photos
Canterbury Cathedral is truly a special place. First and foremost, it is still a working, living church where services are held. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury and is the Mother Church for Anglicans worldwide. The choir was practicing while we were there and it was inspiring.
There is so much to see at the Cathedral. One place not to be missed is the Crypt. It is the oldest part of the church dating back to the 11th century. Another place not to be missed is the Chapter House. Pay special attention to the stained glass windows at both ends of the room - the depictions are quite interesting. The room is also the place where many important decisions have been made throughout history.
It is a beautiful place to see, but it is also a quiet, respectful place to reflect on all that is meaningful to you. Don't pass up the opportunity to share in its spirituality.
The cathedral is open daily and guided tours are available. Photography is allowed, but not in the crypt or during services.
