  Floor of Canterbury Cathedral

Parts of the marble floor show wear from the knees of pilgrims who made the journey to the Shrine of Thomas Becket. I didn't get to see the actual steps or the shrine because it was closed, but it is something to look out for.

The picture is of the floor near the pulpit. The inscription in Greek translates to "The truth frees us".
