Dating to prehistoric times, Canterbury remains today a destination of "pilgrims" seeking history, culture, and fun.

Canterbury is an historic English cathedral city and UNESCO World Heritage Site in South East England. It lies on the River Stour. Canterbury Cathedral is one of the most famous religious structures in the world. Many historical structures remain, including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and a Norman castle, and perhaps the oldest school in England, The King's School.
