Located just a few steps from Canterbury Cathedral in a cobbled street this 15th century hotel is steeped in history with former guests including Charles Dickens. Canterbury lies on the River Stour and along with the towns of Whitstable and Herne Bay is in the local government district of the City of Canterbury. Originally a Celtic settlement it was renamed Durovernum Cantiacorum by the Roman conquerors in the first century AD. After the Kingdom of Kent's conversion to Christianity in 597 St Augustine founded an episcopal see in the city and became the first Archbishop of Canterbury a position that now heads the Church of England and the worldwide Anglican Communion. Thomas Becket's murder at Canterbury Cathedral in 1170 led to the cathedral becoming a place of pilgrimage for Christians worldwide. This pilgrimage provided the theme for Geoffery Chaucer's 14th-century literary classic the Canterbury Tales. The literary heritage continued with the birth of the playwright Christopher Marlowe in the city in the 16th century.
