Experience medieval England at The Canterbury Tales

Canterbury, Kent

Ever wanted to step back in time and experience the sights, sounds and smells of medieval England?

A visit to The Canterbury Tales - a stunning reconstruction of 14th century England - allows you to do just that.

Join Geoffrey Chaucer and the colourful characters from his most famous work on their pilgrimage from London to Canterbury Cathedral, recreated for visitors in the heart of the ancient city. Live actors and wax figures will tell Chaucer's rumbustious tales of love, romance, jealousy and trickery.

This family-friendly visitor attraction has a range of medieval costumes so that would-be knights and princesses can dress up as they journey through medieval England. There’s even a special commentary for children.

A fantastic fun-filled attraction for all the family - especially on rainy days - The Canterbury Tales is the perfect introduction to Canterbury's rich history, and is ideally situated for those also wanting to visit Canterbury Cathedral or do some shopping.
