Canterbury Cathedral is not just a tourist attraction, it is the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion and seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Cathedral is both a holy place and part of a World Heritage Site. It is the home of a community made up of many different types of people all of whom seek to make the Cathedral a place of welcome, beauty and holiness. We hope you will be inspired to visit Canterbury and the Cathedral and we look forward to welcoming you at this outstanding holy place.
Visitors and Pilgrims have made their way to Canterbury Cathedral since the Middle Ages. It is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the country, and importantly, a living community. In the ancient tradition of Benedictine hospitality visitors are always welcome. We continue the tradition, warmly inviting everyone to share with us the beauty and the unique atmosphere of one of the world's great holy places of Christendom.
