Eight hundred years of history. A simple and interesting place to visit, with free written guides given out at the entrance. Another fascinating piece of Canterbury's history.

We thought it was a hospital but it actually is the place poor people could spend the night on their pilgrimage, before paying tribute to the shrine of St. Thomas Beckett in the Cathedral the following day. The entrance fee is only £3 but then...More
