The Romans built a settlement at Canterbury in AD200, and later became the capital of the Saxon Kingdom of Kent. In AD597 St Augustine arrived to bring the Christian message and convert the then King Ethelberht. It’s no surprise today then that a visit to Canterbury must include the Cathedral, which is one of the most famous Christian structures in the country and cathedral of the Archbishop of Canterbury, leader of the Church of England and of the worldwide Anglican Church. The city of Canterbury is great to explore, especially through its traffic-free High Street.
