The cathedral is one of the most important churches in the country and the seat of the Bishop of Rochester. It is also one of the largest church buildings in Europe.

Canterbury Cathedral was built over several centuries, starting in 604 under the direction of Benedictine monks. The nave and part of the transept were completed in 1093, but construction continued well into the 13th century. It is considered one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in Britain. In 1540, during the Reformation, Canterbury Cathedral became the first Anglican church to be granted a royal charter making it an independent institution. In 1834, Charles Dickens visited the cathedral while he was staying in Canterbury. He described it as "one of the greatest churches in all Europe".
