Canterbury holiday cottages

An historic English cathedral city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Canterbury in Kent is also a modern and vibrant city, with a fantastic selection of fine restaurants and independent retailers.

It was Thomas Becket's murder at Canterbury Cathedral in 1170 that resulted in the cathedral becoming a place of pilgrimage for Christians worldwide and it was this pilgrimage that provided the theme for Geoffrey Chaucer's 14th-century literary classic, ‘The Canterbury Tales’.

Now a popular tourist destination, Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom.
