The Canterbury Tales (Canterbury)

"The Canterbury Tales" is a popular tourist attraction in the ancient city of Canterbury in Kent.

It is situated in St. Margaret's Street, in the shadow of the great Canterbury Cathedral.

It is based on Geoffrey Chaucer's famous late 14th century book "The Canterbury Tales", in which a band of pilgrims travelling from London to Canterbury tell each other stories to entertain each other along the way.

The attraction features tableaux and audio visual presentations.

It is housed in what was originally St. Margaret's Church, a mediaeval building which was modernised by Gilbert Scott, to accommodate a wider street, in the 19th century.
