Top places of worship recommendations from locals

Church
“The Cathedral is one of Canterbury’s main attractions, there has been a place of worship here for over 1500 years. This cathedral is one of the oldest in England, with a millennium of history. It is well known as the place Thomas Becket was murdered by knights of King Henry II. In its years it has survived fire, the Restoration and general modernity – and yet its gothic towers and beautiful stained-glass windows remain as impressive today as they were a thousand years ago.”

“St Leonard's church stands on Hythe Hill looking more like a small cathedral. The church is famous for its crypt full of thousands of human bones and skulls. It is an eleventh century church and well worth a visit. The church also regularly hosts music concerts so it is worth looking at the church notice board.”

Church
“the largest and best-preserved collection of ancient human skulls and bones in Britain. The collection consists of shelves in four arched bays that contain 1,022 skulls in total, and a single stack of bones and skulls measuring 7.5m in length, 1.8m in width and just over 1.8m in height. The stack of bones was reassembled on its brick base in 1910. Past historians indicated that the collection represents the remains of some 4,000 people, but it is impossible to verify the number of bones in the stack. Our latest estimate is a maximum number of 1,000 skulls in the crypt and the total number of individuals represented as 2,000.”
