A hidden gem. It's rather small but it feels authentic and the people working there gave us a bit of history which made the experience even more worthwhile.

Well worth going in as it took you back in time and had a lot of factual information about the pilgrims and times gone past. Really very interesting place and worth the £2 entry.

An interesting place, where the pilgrims stayed overnight when visiting Canterbury, as part of their pilgrimage. Unusual rooms, quirky area's to see and all steeped in history.
