Canterbury Tales attraction reveals major re-launch

Date Posted: 13/03/2015

Over £20,000 has been spent on revitalising The Canterbury Tales in Kent.

The popular attraction brings to life five of Chaucer’s best-loved stories with tales of love, romance and trickery, vividly recreated with all the fun of his original tales.

You will experience a reconstruction of 14th century England, set inside the former St Margaret’s Church, which gives groups the opportunity to step back in time and experience the sights, smells and sounds of medieval times.

Over two million people have visited the attraction and specialist set designers have revitalised the sets, live guiding by costumed characters has been extended to cover more of the tour, access has been improved for wheelchair users, and new signage and leaflets have been produced.

Fresh from its refurbishment, The Canterbury Tales was re-launched on 10th March when the Lord Mayor of Canterbury, Ann Taylor joined VIPs, representatives of the tourism sector in the city and other guests for an evening of medieval merriment.
