Information about Canterbury
The English city of Canterbury is located near London, in the county of Kent, on the River Stour. The city is world famous for its important cathedral and, as the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the spiritual head of the Church of England, it is a major religious centre. The area's attractions include Canterbury Castle, a very ancient construction, built soon after the 11th century Battle of Hastings. The castle later became a prison, and now it is a museum and an excellent spot for a walk. A must-see is Canterbury Cathedral, a striking piece of architecture and an important religious building. Other places to visit are the Canterbury Environment Centre, an exhibition centre that hosts events and exhibitions related to the history, culture and environment of this historic city. Also of interest is the Canterbury Roman Museum, where many Roman finds from the area can be seen. This small city has many art galleries and parks and gardens where visitors can enjoy being in the outdoors and participate in the many recreational activities available.
