NOTE ... NOTE ... NOTE
This is an old post from 2009. The Canterbury Attractions Passport is NO LONGER OFFERED.
Canterbury, Kent is one of the most historic cities in England. The Visitor Information Centre at Canterbury has come up with a way for visitors to the city to save a bit of money on admission to some of Canterbury's best known historical attractions. Its a visitor discount card called, appropriately, the Canterbury Attractions Passport.
The passport allows you to visit four attractions in Canterbury for one discounted price. The four attractions are:
- Canterbury Cathedral - this superb medieval cathedral is best known as the place of Archbishop Thomas a Becket's murder, but there's more to this special building than just that. The architecture is superb, and it ranks as one of the most important historical buildings in Britain.
- St Augustine's Abbey - this ancient building was established
- The Canterbury Tales - (external website) this modern visitor attraction tells the story of Geoffrey Chaucer's imaginary pilgrims, and the thousands of very real pilgrims who flocked to Canterbury during the Middle Ages. The Canterbury Tales is housed in historic St Margaret's church.
- One of Canterbury's city museums - select your museum of choice from among the Canterbury Roman Museum (external website), West Gate Towers museum (external website), and the Museum of Canterbury (external website).
The Canterbury Attractions Passport is available only from the Canterbury Visitor Information Centre at Beaney House of Art and Knowledge.The visitor centre can also be contacted online at www.canterbury.co.uk
