If I’m honest, I really like these sorts of things. I went with a friend who doesn’t but he was patient with me. Love some Chaucer and this is a good lesson for those unfamiliar with The Canterbury Tales.

I think myself and my son-in-law were under the impression the attractions would be completely done by live, costumed characters so we made a point of dragging my 3 grandsons (aged 8-16) to this thinking it would be a fun, informative attraction. Alas, only the...More

I went with my partner and we were on the last tour of the day. We entered the experience at 1600 and were in the gift shop having completed the tour by 1632. I am not sure it’s worth £10.95 for 1/2 entertainment

This is a must for all when in Canterbury, it's very interesting and reminds you of stories from your childhood. Very well done a little pricey but ok

I went with my family which includes teenagers and a toddler and it was very accessible for all. The staff are great and play the roles very wells and you do learn alot at the same time!

A good place for families to learn about The Canterbury Tales. The audio guide was helpful and so were the people there. I think it is a good place to learn some history.

We went to the Canterbury Tales with my 2 young grand daughters. The guide was foreign and it was hard to understand everything she said. Some of the displays looked a bit dated. The children liked the dressing up part and gift shop! We have...More

The tour lasts about 40 minutes, it's not an in depth study of Chaucer by any means but I would recommend it. The visitors walk through various stages where models are positioned depicting the 'Tales' and an explanation is given of each. You'll receive an...More

After wandering around beautiful Canterbury it started to rain. Seeing this museum we thought we would give it a go, very glad we did! Great staff, witty informative tour that lasts about half an hour. The kids on the tour seemed to enjoy their audio...More

My Mum and I visited here at the beginning of the week, we both thought it was good fashioned entertainment with no need for pyrotechnics to tell the story, a nice refreshing change
