Canterbury is out on the southeastern coast of England. It's been a friggin' tourist trap for hundreds of years. They used to call road trips pilgrimages back then. This dude Chaucer wrote a nasty book about 'em and now we all keep coming back.

Some other dude, archbishop Thomas Becket, got his head chopped off in the cathedral. The 'glish were big on the chopping action. No picture of the spot due to the infinite number of maddeningly annoying French school children.

The outside is your standard issue cathedral, but the inside is more interesting.
The ceiling.
The 'glish are also into their war dead and really old flags from conflicts like the Crimean war. They don't throw anything away.
