Canterbury Cathedral.

"Of all our cathedrals none is of such absorbing interest as Canterbury. It is vast in scale: the problems presented by the incorporation of fragments of its predecessors are fascinating to the antiquary; its eastern limb as set out in the eleventh century changed the whole direction of English church planning; its twelfth-century successor introduced into England important features of the Gothic architecture of France; and laid the foundations of the south eastern school of English Gothic : in spite of much destruction its walls yet hold a wealth of noble monuments, unequalled except at Westminster."
