LVI Literary Tour of Canterbury
  • English
  • Enrichment
  • Sixth Form

Eleven students from Lower Sixth enriched their study and enjoyment of Chaucer by visiting numerous historic and literary sites around Canterbury as part of their A level English Literature studies. Similar to their medieval predecessors, the students followed in Chaucerian footsteps, journeying from London to Canterbury's imposing West Gate Tower, followed by a visit and tour of sites such as: The Canterbury Tales Visitor Centre, East Bridge Hospital and Ducking Stool, as well as culminating their visit with a guided tour of Canterbury Cathedral, where they discovered some of the latest research being undertaken by the University of York into the lives and experiences undertaken by medieval pilgrims during the time of Chaucer. Time was also found for some much needed retail therapy post end-of-year examinations, a spot of lunch and delicious hot chocolate to round off the day and make our way happily returning from our pilgrimage.
