A visit to The Canterbury Tales, with its stunning reconstruction of 14th century England, allows you to do just that.

Join Geoffrey Chaucer, widely considered the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages, and his colourful characters on their pilgrimage from London to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. Along the way, their rumbustious stories of love, romance, jealousy and trickery are vividly re-created with all the fun and excitement of Chaucer's famous tales.

This family-friendly visitor attraction has also added a range of medieval costumes, including a choice for would-be knights and princesses, which children can dress up in and wear as they journey through Medieval England.

Costumed character guides have been introduced to entertain, amuse and educate visitors for part of the tour. There’s even a special commentary for children.
