Canterbury is a place of great importance for people of Christian faith. In fact, the Archbishop of Canterbury is the jurisdictional authority of the Church of England. The city is located in eastern England, in the district of Kent. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom.


The town of Canterbury is home to a wide range of attractions, and things to do.

You can take a river tour to enjoy more of the town and even dine on one of the boats for a romantic time.
