The St. Augustine’s Abbey is an ancient ruin of an abbey. This important monastic foundation... more was a grand cathedral. Home to various royal nobles in the past, today it is a major historic landmark. England’s most ancient church which is still in use is the Church of St. Martin, instrumental in making Canterbury a World Heritage Site. The splendid architecture displayed in the church is a blend of Roman and Anglo-Saxon styles.
