It’s Facebook competition time again, and this time the prize is a family ticket to ‘Canterbury Tales’. This is a superb visitor attraction in the town of Canterbury, Kent. Plus, with the Easter holidays just around the corner, it is a great day our for the family!

What’s included in the prize?

Our friends at Canterbury Tales have kindly offered us a family ticket for up to four people, worth £32.50. You’ll gain admission to this fabulous attraction, which takes you back in time to Chaucer’s England. After all, a visit to Canterbury is not complete without experiencing Chaucer’s famous tales!  Meet costumed guides, and walk alongside Chaucer’s pilgrims. Plus, you’ll revel in the recreated medieval scenes and discover five colourful tales of love, infidelity, intrigue, courtship and death. Furthermore, you’ll experience the sights, sounds and smells of medieval England, which makes this a unique and theatrical introduction to Canterbury and its famous literary connection.

 

Your adventure begins at The Tabard Inn. Here you will meet the first of your costumed guides who’ll prepare you for your pilgrimage to Canterbury. As you leave your guide to walk alongside Chaucer’s pilgrims, you will find yourself in the midst of a story-telling contest. Five of Chaucer’s colourful and entertaining tales are brought vividly to life as you journey through the recreated medieval scenes and listen to the audio guide. When you reach Canterbury, you will be met by a second costumed guide who will take you to your ultimate destination – the shrine of St Thomas Becket. This pilgrimage appeals to visitors of all ages.

We are pleased to have worked with Canterbury Tales for many years, as they are one of our retailers. Pop along to the Hall of Names and you’ll be able to find out all about your surname history!
