This Easter holidays we are heading to this family activities as Official Canterbury Tales Bloggers. To say that we are excited is an understatement!
The Canterbury Tales is the only attraction in the world dedicated to celebrating the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of English Literature who is widely considered to be the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages. During the 40 minute experience, through a combination of live interaction and audio guides, guests are regaled by five very different tales of true love, saucy scheming and spine-chilling trickery as each of Chaucer’s colourful characters competes to win the title of best story-teller.
Although, the tour inside the attraction is recommended for ages 5+, which I think Ethan will very much enjoy both the tour and the Medieval Story Garden activities, Evelyn may not be as interested by the attraction. But more so with the opening of The Canterbury Tales Medieval Story Garden. This event is free with entry into the attraction! There will have lots of family activities galore available to entertain visitors. Children will enjoy storytelling from a costumed character guide, discover Medieval Medicine techniques, complete a Knight’s School quest, plus get the opportunity to perform for friends and family at a Maypole Dancing session. So there will be plentiful to keep my little ones engaged!
The Canterbury Tales also offers joint tickets with the historic Westgate Towers.
Go on to explore the Westgate Towers museum and viewing point, with a breath taking view of Canterbury from the top.
It also earns it’s VisitEngland Badge in 2015 and the Trip Advisor 2016 badge too.
