Inside Canterbury Cathedral

Traveling in England, we spent a half day in Canterbury. The small shops and restaurants lining the small streets have a distinct European flare. You could spend a day just window shopping and trying the local treats and sweets. But the main event not to be missed was Canterbury Cathedral. Like most of our stops, it was way too short. I could have spent half a day just soaking in the atmosphere and tremendous size of this church.

This is the main nave, looking west to the choir screen in the distant center. The doorway leads to another area where the choir sits, all built above a large crypt underground.
