Treat the family to a day at the award-winning Canterbury Tales Visitor Attraction which brings five of Geoffrey Chaucer's engaging historic tales to life!

Experience the sounds, smells and sights of medieval England on a fun adventure that begins at The Tabard Inn where you'll meet the first of your costumed guides. As you walk alongside Chaucer's pilgrims on your 'pilgrimage' through recreated medieval scenes to the shrine of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral, you'll find yourself in the midst of a story-telling contest recounting the famous tales of love, jealousy, intrigue, romance and death.

The pilgrimage appeals to families of all ages and the tales are retold in a fun and engaging audio commentary - including a children's commentary - narrated by world-famous actors.

Canterbury Tales offers the perfect introduction to the historic town of Canterbury and its renowned literary connection at the only attraction in the world dedicated to Chaucer and his tales.

Tales include:

The Knight's Tale
A story rich in love, rivalry and chivalry. Two men fall in love with the same beautiful girl, but which will claim her heart?

The Miller's Tale
The slightly bawdy tale of a deceitful clerk who tries to win the affections of the carpenter's wife - and gets more than he bargained for!

The Wife of Bath's Tale
This tale asks the question 'What do women most desire?'. Having had five husbands, the Wife of Bath should know!

The Nun's Priest's Tale
Can Chanticleer the farmyard cock outwit the wily old fox, or will he become his supper?

The Pardoner's Tale
A dark tale of death and trickery with an unexpected ending - beware!
