Canterbury Centre - 14.42 miles
Canterbury Cathedral dominates the narrow streets and ancient buildings of Canterbury. Parts of the city are still enclosed by the medieval city walls which remain along with the castle keep. Settlement here predates the Roman invasion. One of the sights of Canterbury is the well-preserved Roman pavement in the longmarket shopping precinct. The most famous historical event which took place here was the murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170 by the knights of Henry II. Beckett's shrine was destroyed during the reign of Henry VIII but many tombs still remain such as those of Edward the Black Prince and Henry IV. Other places to see include St Martin's Church said to be the oldest church in England.
