The Cathedral has been a place of worship for more than 1,400 years.
Pilgrims and visitors have made their way to Canterbury Cathedral since the Middle Ages. It remains one of the most visited places in the country, and, just as importantly, a working, living church and community. Visitors have always been made welcome in the ancient tradition of Benedictine hospitality. We continue this tradition, warmly inviting you to share with us the beauty of one of the great holy places of Christendom.
There is much to discover and explore, and on these pages we can only give you a glimpse into the Cathedral’s rich history, its collections and the conservation of this great holy place.
