Day 6 – Canterbury
Day 6 – Canterbury – Wellington
Today we made our way to the historic English Cathedral City of Canterbury. Situated on the banks of the River Stour, this UNESCO World Heritage site made up of quaint, cobbled streets is known for its exciting history. We were all able to visit the famous Cathedral which is the heart of the Church of England as well as the sight where Thomas Becket was brutally murdered in 1170 by four of King Henry II’s knights. Whilst walking around the Cathedral, the students were able to fully appreciate the amazing acoustics of the building as a local orchestra and choir practiced for a performance which took place this evening.
