The ancient city of Canterbury inspired Chaucer’s medieval masterpiece, The Canterbury Tales, a collection of stories about pilgrims travelling to the famous cathedral. 

Many still make the pilgrimage today, visiting the shrine of venerated saint and martyr Thomas Becket, who was killed there in 1170. Founded in 597 AD by St Augustine, the cathedral boasts a fascinating history and contains over 1,200 square metres of stained glass.
