The city of Canterbury is located in south-east England in the county of Kent. It has been a place of prominence in the Anglican church for centuries, being the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the Church of England.

The murder of Thomas Becket there led to Canterbury becoming a popular pilgrimage destination, as immortalised in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

The city has an ancient history spanning back to prehistoric times, and has visible remains from the Roman period onwards.
