DESCRIPTION

Canterbury Cathedral is the spiritual heart of the Church of England, and a majestic work of architecture and art that is one of Britain’s great historic attractions. Founded in Anglo-Saxon times, the cathedral was transformed through successive buiding programmes between the eleventh and fifteenth centuries to become the composite work of great beauty that survives today. Among its highlights are the Norman crypt, the awe-inspiring Gothic East End, the medieval Nave and Cloisters, and the famous stained glass, while the tragic story of St Thomas Becket has drawn visitors to Canterbury for over 900 years.
 
This official souvenir guide for Canterbury Cathedral presents the manifold glories of the cathedral in fine, full-page photography throughout, with captions in five languages (English, French, German, Italian and Japanese).
