Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest Cathedrals in England and dates back to 6th century.
It was founded by Augustine of Canterbury, who was sent by Pope Gregory to support the church among the Anglo Saxons.
The Cathedral is part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.
It is also the home of the Church of England and the seat of the Archbishop, who is head of the Church.
While founded in 597, the cathedral was destroyed in the 11th century, though rebuilt and enlarged in 12th in gothic style.
The shrine to Thomas Becket is in the Cathedral and has attracted many pilgrims throughout the centuries. Thomas Becket, the Archbishop was murdered in the Cathedral in 1170.
