History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of medieval Canterbury through interactive displays, authentic recreations of street scenes, and a modern retelling of Chaucer's Tale.
Follow Chaucer's Pilgrims from the Tabard tavern in London to the shrine of St Thomas a Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. Audio guides are available in many languages and there is a special children's audio guide.
Be warned: in the summer months Canterbury Tales can be very crowded; the attraction is a popular destination for school groups and tour buses, so you may have to line up and wait your turn.
