Founded in the year 597 and rebuilt in the 11th and 12th centuries, Canterbury Cathedral is the quintessential jewel of the English Gothic style, and has been a World Heritage Site since 1988. It is a cross-shaped basilica with several additions of diverse styles and periods, Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance.

Its impressive stained glass windows stand out, especially those that adorn the Trinity Chapel, as well as the tomb of Saint Thomas Becket, who was murdered here in 1170, and which immediately became a pilgrimage destination. The cloister and Bell Harry Tower also stand out.
