MOTHER CHURCH

Kent Life - - Town Life: Canterbury -

Orig­i­nally founded in the sixth cen­tury and re­built in the 11th, iconic me­dieval Can­ter­bury cathe­dral has been de­scribed as ‘Eng­land in stone’. The seat of the Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury and the ‘Mother Church’ for Angli­cans, it has long been one of the most im­por­tant re­li­gious sites in the world. Me­dieval pil­grims flocked to visit the shrine of Thomas Becket and to­day tourists still come from all over the world to see the build­ing that forms part of Can­ter­bury’s UNESCO World Her­itage Site.
