The historic city of Canterbury is located in south east England in the county of Kent and lies on the River Stour. The city's cathedral, which lies at the heart of the city, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Canterbury Cathedral was founded in 597 AD by Augustine and is the Mother Church of the Anglican Communion and the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Anglican Church. Many historical structures remain, including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and a Norman castle, and perhaps the oldest school in England, The King's School.
The city's theatre and concert hall is the Marlowe Theatre which was named after Christopher Marlowe, who was born in the city in Elizabethan times. The old Marlowe Theatre was located in St Margaret's Street and housed a repertory theatre. The Gulbenkian Theatre, at the University of Kent, also serves the city, housing also a cinema and café. The Marlowe Theatre has now been completely rebuilt, fully opening in October 2011. Besides the two theatres, theatrical performances also take place at several areas of the city, for instance the Cathedral and St Augustine's Abbey. The premiere of Murder in the Cathedral by T. S. Eliot took place at Canterbury Cathedral.
The city is served by two main line railway stations: Canterbury West and Canterbury East.

The main shopping street is the broad and bustling Briggate where many flagship stores can be found, including Harvey Nichols and House of Fraser.
Centred on the massive dome of the Corn Exchange, the Exchange Quarter is the centre of Leeds' bohemian life, with one-off boutiques, funky cafés and piercing parlours filling its pretty cobbled streets.
