Canterbury's skyline is dominated by the stunning Cathedral, which is the oldest in England. But the cathedral is only part of the story; the ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site while other ancient ruins such as the Castle are reminders of the city's history, heritage and culture. Canterbury has been a major centre of pilgrimage, since the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170, and was the backdrop of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, written in 1387, about pilgrims travelling stories. The city is quite charming with its beautiful architecture and majestic college buildings, cobbled streets and traditional charm.
