Meet our costumed guides, walk alongside Chaucer’s pilgrims and revel in the recreated medieval scenes as five colourful tales of love, infidelity, intrigue, courtship and death are brought vividly to life. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of medieval England; a unique and theatrical introduction to Canterbury and its famous literary connection.
Your adventure begins in London. Here you will meet the first of your costumed guides who’ll prepare you for your pilgrimage to Canterbury. As you leave your guide to walk alongside Chaucer’s pilgrims, you’ll find yourself in the midst of a story-telling contest. Five of Chaucer’s colourful and entertaining tales of love, infidelity, intrigue, courtship and death are brought vividly to life as you make your journey through the recreated medieval scenes and listen to the audio guide. When you reach Canterbury, you will be met by a second costumed guide who will take you to your ultimate destination- the shrine of St Thomas Becket.
Set entirely in the historical St Margaret’s Church, this is history and literature at it’s most engaging and immersive. With an exciting selection of workshops and joint tickets on offer, there has never been a better time to visit!
With a combination of live interaction from our characters, the aid of an audio guide, six foreign language translations, and even a special commentary and costumes for children, the experience will appeal to visitors of all ages. Laugh with us, learn with us.
