Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Police Chief -

Pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tion the Can­ter­bury Tales cel­e­brates its 30th an­niver­sary this year and is ap­peal­ing for vis­i­tors through­out the decades to send in pic­tures of them­selves at the venue.

Based in St Mar­garet’s Street, vis­tors fol­low the fa­mous pil­grims de­picted in his book, the Can­ter­bury Tales, as they travel from the Tabard Inn in London to the shrine of Thomas Becket at the cathe­dral. As they do so, they travel through var­i­ous im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ences which seek to em­u­late the sights and sounds of their trip.

Lyn­d­say Ri­d­ley, gen­eral man­ager of the at­trac­tion, ex­plained: “As we cel­e­brate this ma­jor mile­stone, we are ap­peal­ing to the many thou­sands of vis­i­tors who have passed through our doors over the years to share any pho­tos they have from their vis­its.

“We are ask­ing peo­ple to find their favourite pho­tos from their vis­its to the at­trac­tion. We first opened back in 1988 so I’m hop­ing we’ll get to see some great fash­ions and hair­cuts from the 1980s and 90s.”

A se­lec­tion of the best im­ages will be dis­played in an archive on the at­trac­tion’s web­site.

Vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to share their pho­to­graphs via so­cial me­dia us­ing the hash­tag #can­ter­bury­tales30. Al­ter­na­tively, scanned pho­to­graphs can be emailed to [email protected]­ter­bury­ The dead­line for sub­mis­sions is April 6.
