Canterbury Cathedral Tour- The Precincts Tour on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

The Precincts Tour

From the time of Ethelbert & Bertha to our current Queen and the many stories in between.

Uncover the Cathedral story from a different perspective.  Discover how the Cathedral survived targeted bombing by the Luftwaffe and the day it turned red. Hear the haunting tale of Ellen Bean, and learn why the Cathedral Crypt is above ground and how the feet of Stephen Langton, a major influencer of Magna Carta, now rest out in the cold.

You can also take a look at the work of our modern day masons as they battle to conserve and repair this remarkable medieval building.

12.00, Monday, Wednesday, Friday
