About the venue

Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest and most famous Christian structures in England and is listed as a World Heritage Site. It is the cathedral of the Archbishop of Canterbury, leader of the Church of England and the worldwide Anglican Communion. Its history dates back to to 597AD when St Augustine was sent as a missionary to establish his seat (or 'Cathedra') in Canterbury. One of the most pivotal events in the Cathedral's history was the murder of Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. The Cathedral has since been the attraction for thousands of Pilgrims as told in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
