High Street

Cantebury is the home of the famous Canterbury Cathedral. The center of the city is largely unchanged since medieval ages. The narrow lanes crowded many times with tourists really give a sense of history. The cathedral itself charges admission however it is well worth it for the sheer splendour of the building itself and it's imposing nature. Take a tour if one is available.

The town is well worth walking around to explore (parking within the town is extremely difficult), especially along the old city walls which have a number of parks and gardens along them.

I have visited “The Canterbury Tales” (St Margaret's St, Canterbury CT1 2TG) several times and it is a surprisingly good introduction to the stories told with recreated animated scenes, sounds and smells (!)
