Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury Cathedral was one of the most important centres of pilgrimage in Medieval England. There has been a cathedral at Canterbury since 597 when St. Augustine baptised the Saxon King Ethelbert. The Archbishop of Canterbury was the most senior religious figure in the land and he was based at the cathedral. While the cathedral had huge significance at both a religious and political level in medieval times, its importance as a centre of pilgrimage greatly increased after the murder of Thomas Becket there in 1170.

It is said that in 1420, 100,000 pilgrims made their way on their knees along the nave to Pilgrim’s Steps. Canterbury Cathedral is a spectacular building, rich in history through the centuries.

The White Cliffs Of Dover

The White Cliffs of Dover are the most famous symbol of the Channel port in Kent. They are 300 feet tall and stretch for 10 miles to the east and west of the town of Dover. The cliffs face France across the narrowest part of the English Channel.

 

The stunning coastline of Dover has been saying ‘farewell’ and ‘hello to’ thousands of people crossing the English Channel for centuries. It’s a symbol of home, hope and freedom and wartime defence. But not only people on the sea can wonder at their beauty. Thousands of people walk on the cliff’s top paths and enjoy the unique flora and fauna that can be found only there. Enjoy a stroll along the breath-taking views of the busy English Channel. Rated by the Guardian as among the top ten walks in England.

 

The White Cliffs of Dover are a symbol for Britons everywhere.
