Canterbury

Located in the county of Kent, just 100 km from London, this medieval city is famous for its medieval architecture and its cultural heritage. Plan your trip with ebooking and visit the timeless and inspiring Canterbury.
The gothic cathedral of Canterbury is one of the most popular attractions among tourists. Declared part of the World Heritage by the UNESCO, it is famous for being the centre of English Christianity and the place where the famous Thomas Becket was buried.

The Royal Museum, and the Art Gallery or the Roman Museum are also some of the must-see attractions and they complete the cultural offer of this historical city. All of them are located in the old part of the city, where most of the hotels and hostels are placed. Once there, you mustn’t miss the West Gate Museum either, famous for its panoramic views of Canterbury and for being one of the few fortifications which survived the wartime.
Travelling by foot is always a good way of exploring the city. Its medieval streets filled with historical buildings won’t leave you indifferent. St. Margaret Street is one of the most popular areas. Its historical buildings, traditional shops and lively pubs are full of charm. You should also walk around St. Peter Street, at the edge of River Stour, where the traditional Tudor-style houses of the weavers can be found. Or if you prefer it, you can book a guide boar tour at Ducking Stool and go along the River.
Canterbury is also famous for the Canterbury Tales, written by Geoffrey Chaucer. It is a collection of stories about the journeys from London to Canterbury. St. Margaret’s church holds an exhibition of the Canterbury tales which is worth seeing.
Whether you are looking for a short break or longer holidays these are some of the reasons why you should visit Canterbury.
