    Canterbury Cathedral

    It is definitely worth a visit. Take your time and really take in the magnitude of this building. Look at the ceilings, the stained glass windows. Reflect on the past and the future.

  • Canterbury Cathedral - Cloister

    Cloister

    Outside of the Cathedral is the Cloister. It was an important area when the Cathedral was part of a Benedictine monastery. The monastery was dissolved under Henry VIII in 1540.

    Pulpit

    The pulpit of the Canterbury Cathedral is very delicately carved and painted, and is one of the most colorful items in the Cathedral.

  • Canterbury Cathedral - Nave

    Canterbury Cathedral

    The Nave was completed in 1405. The arches really draw you in. The picture is of the ceiling of the Cathedral.

  • Canterbury Cathedral - Stained Glass

    by grkboiler Written Dec 2, 2004
    Canterbury Cathedral

    The Canterbury Cathedral is full of beautiful stained glass windows. Look for scenes of Thomas Becket's life, scenes from the Bible, and Medieval scenes.

    The cathedral from the side

    The Cathedral charges an entrance fee but it is still possible to admire the architecture from afar. And besides walking around the city is good for you . . . and rewarding.

    The cathedral from the rear, more nice gardens

    Another view of the cathedral, this time from outside the walls and with another nice formal flower bed.

    Canterbury Cathedral

    When in Canterbury you must see the Canterbury Cathedral. It is a very beautiful building and home to the arch bishop. It is a huge church and you can find the graves of many significant people

    Stained Glass Window

    The cathedral dates back to the 6th century and is decorated with many detailed stained glass windows and wall paintings. My graduation ceremony was held here and it was a great venue.
