Overview

Canterbury Cathedral Shop Canterbury Cathedral has charitable status and owns Cathedral Enterprises Ltd. (CEL) to trade on its behalf and give the profit back to the cathedral. Canterbury Cathedral Shop carries on a historic tradition selling replicas of “Pilgrims Tokens” in a large range of carefully selected gifts including recordings made by our world-famous choirs. We publish a wide range of books on the cathedral. Many of the gifts have been designed exclusively for us and have won awards. The shop is also well known for a wide range of tapestries. CEL also caters for the many Cathedral visitors who want a good souvenir. As we are in "The Garden of England" most of our food is from Kent and Sussex. We try to source items that are ethically produced, locally if possible.

The shop is one of the exits from Canterbury Cathedral's precincts. It offers a good range of gifts, from the "pocket money" type to more expensive originals. It is the best place to buy Canterbury- themed souvenirs, rather than generic (made in Far East) "British"...More

No attraction can be complete without a souvenir shop! After visiting the cathedral, make sure to have a quick look at it! There's plenty of interesting stuff, such as books, antiques, CDs, DVDs, clothes, accessories....

Even though I visited in February, I found several items that will end up in the Christmas stockings of friends. The prices are high, but for the most part, the quality is very good.
