Attraction Information

Discover Canterbury Cathedral, an incredible cathedral packed full of history, stories and amazing things to see, from the beautiful stained glass windows to exploring the glorious green spaces and Cathedral Cloisters. 

The first cathedral to ever be built in England, this is one for history buffs of all ages! Discover the final resting place of infamous royalty, King Henry VI, and step back into a medieval world and see the tomb of the iconic warrior ‘The Black Prince’. As you explore the cathedral, keep your eyes peeled for dragons and grotesques and the incredible stained glass windows, plus if you’ve ventured outside you might be so lucky as to see the Peregrine Falcons swooping overhead! 

The oldest cathedral in England is a great day out for any family, from stepping back in time and exploring history to finding little gems hidden around, plus don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the Dean of Canterbury's many furry friends!

  • England's oldest Cathedral 
  • Loads of great things to discover
