A short video welcome to Canterbury Cathedral for the deaf or hearing impaired.
Welcome to the website of Canterbury Cathedral, the most important or 'Mother' Church of the Anglican Communion and base church (seat) of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Cathedral is both a holy place and part of a World Heritage Site. It is the home of a community of people who want (seek) to make the Cathedral a place of welcome, beauty and holiness. We hope you will be inspired to visit Canterbury and the Cathedral and we look forward to welcoming you. - The Very Reverend Robert Willis
The Cathedral's history goes back to 597AD when St Augustine, who was sent by Pope Gregory the Great as a missionary, established his seat (or 'Cathedra') in Canterbury and built the first cathedral. In 1170 Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in the Cathedral and ever since, the Cathedral has attracted thousands of pilgrims, like the pilgrims in the famous stories 'Canterbury Tales'.
Canterbury Cathedral is more than just a beautiful old building. It is a place of worship, a place to meet, a place to pray without distractions, but most of all it is a living community.
