About Canterbury Cathedral
The cathedral’s history goes back to 597 when St Augustine, sent by Pope Gregory the Great as a missionary, established his seat in Canterbury. In 1170, Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in the cathedral and, ever since, the cathedral has attracted thousands of pilgrims, as told famously in Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales.
