Travel Tips for Canterbury

The Nave...

by coceng

First : The Nave;
It's one of the most magnificent surviving examples of English Gothic architecture...
It was all begun in 1377, probably designed & excuted under the direction of master mason Henry Yevele...
I think that's the organ pipes...

by whitecliff62 about ZIZZI

Good looking restaurant this one, and the food aint bad as well. The Zizzi has a nice warming feeling to the place and from the out side it actually looke more like an antique shop hehehehehe, but well worth a try Idid not eat at this restaurant but the menu looked quite good so you will have to try for yourself and let me know what its like

In the countryside

by kentishgirl about The Gate Inn - Chislet

The Gate is a tiny pub located a few miles outside of the city in a small village called Chiset.

The pub is VERY small, but very cosy, they have an open fire and all of their food is homemade - very reasonable pricewise, really friendly and really great atmosphere. Garlic Bread with Bacon and Cheese, Nachos, Mega Grill!!!!!!

Canterbury Cathedral

by grkboiler

The Canterbury Cathedral is one of the most fascinating places I have ever visited. It has its beginnings with St. Augustine arriving in Canterbury in 597 to set up the Christian church there. He became the first Archbishop of Canterbury and built the first cathedral in 602. It lasted over 400 years until it burned down in 1067. The Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury who oversees the world's entire Anglican community.

Work on the current Cathedral began in 1070 and really hasn't stopped, although the official completion date was 1503. There have been many renovations and additions and not much of the original Cathedral remains.

Visiting hours are 9am-6:30pm in the summer and 9am-5pm in the winter. On Sundays, hours are 9am-2:30pm in the summer and 10am-2pm and 4:30pm-5:30pm. Check the website for special events and scheduled closings. Admission is charged and permits must be purchased for photography. Audio tours are available.

See my other tips for more specific info. Unfortunately, parts of the Cathedral were closed during my visit so I don't have pictures of the whole thing and can't tell you everything about it. Parts that were closed were: the Quire, Crypt, and the back of the Cathedral with the Shrine of St. Thomas and the Tomb of the Black Prince.
