The City of Canterbury is one of the most visited places in all of the UK – and it's easy to see why. From the world famous Canterbury Cathedral, to its Roman ruins, to the prestigious King's School, there is plenty to see and do here. Inhabited since prehistoric times, there are plenty of reminders of Canterbury's 2,000 years of history. You can still see the city wall founded in the Roman times, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and a Norman castle. Canterbury Cathedral, which was founded in 597, is the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the burial place of King Henry IV and Edward the Black Prince (as well as the site of the murder of Thomas Becket!).
Canterbury is also a shopping haven – wander down King's Mile to find cute and quirky independent boutiques, or stock up on big name brands along the High Street. Whitefriars Shopping Centre also has over 100 stores and restaurants.
For eating and drinking, Canterbury has plenty to offer. You'll find a plethora of English pubs scattered throughout the city, all within easy walking distance of each other. Restaurants to cater to every taste (and budget) are mainly found in the town centre. Visitors can also enjoy a scenic river tour along the Stour River that takes you through some of the city's finest architecture and natural scenery.
