Experience the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone era in this fabulous recreation of medieval life; a unique introduction to Canterbury and its famous literary connection.
Your adventure begins in the Tabard Inn, where you will meet the first of our costumed guides, preparing you for your pilgrimage from London to Canterbury. To continue your experience, you are invited to share five of Chaucerís most famous tales, with the aid of an audio guide (commentary available in six languages together with a special version in English for children). Along the way, Chaucerís colourful and entertaining stories of love, romance, jealousy and trickery are dramatically brought to life for you to enjoy.
Your journey ends with our second guide at the shrine of St Thomas Becket Ė be sure to be ready to share your tales from your pilgrimage.
