Canterbury( ), )[3] is a historical British metropolis and UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the centre of Canterbury, an administrative region of Kent, England. Archbishop of Canterbury is the first of the Church of England and the Anglican community around the world because of the importance of Saint Augustine, who at the turn of the 20th centuries ministered as the patriarch of the heathen kingdom of Kent.

After Thomas Becket's ordeal in 1170, the town' s Catholic Church became an important place of worship, although it had already been an abandoned place of worship since the assassination of the Holy Alphege by the men of King Canute in 1012. An itinerary to Becket's sanctuary provided the setting for Geoffrey Chaucer's classical The Canterbury Tales from the XIV World War.

A favourite holiday spot, Canterbury is one of the most frequented towns in the UK[4] and its economic development is highly dependent on it. It has been under occupation since the Paleolithic Age and has been the main town of the Celtic Cantiaci and Jute Kingdom of Kent. The area is full of historic buildings, among them a rampart from Rome, which was reconstructed in the fourteenth centuary, the remains of St. Augustine Abbey, a Norman fortress and the oldest surviving building in the word, the Royal Theatre.

The Marlowe Theatre and St. Lawrence Ground, home of the Kent County Cricket Club, are contemporary addition. We also have a significant number of students due to the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, the University for the Creative Arts and the Girne American University Canterbury Camp.
