Ever wondered what it would be like to step back in time and experience the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone era? At The Canterbury Tales you can do just that. Step into medieval Canterbury and accompany Geoffrey Chaucer and his colourful pilgrims on their magical journey from London to the Shrine of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury. Along the way, their stories of love, romance, jealousy and trickery are vividly re-created with all the humour of Chaucer's famous tales. The Canterbury Tale is a fascinating and accurate portrayal of life in medieval England during the 14th century.
