The Canterbury Cathedral is a pilgrimage place for all Christians, first leaded by the Archbishop of Canterbury, but also because of Thomas Becket's murder at Canterbury Cathedral in 1170. The contrast between historical structures, such as The City Wall, the Dane John Mound & Dane John Gardens, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey, the Norman Castle and The King's School, marry well with the modern additions, including the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, the Marlowe Theatre, and the St Lawrence Ground. Many attractions draw visitors of all ages; in the medieval St Margaret's Church are displayed the well known life-sized characters of "The Canterbury Tales" by Geoffrey Chaucer. Also The Westgate is now turned into a museum retracing its history as a jail. Canterbury is also notorious for hosting many musical performances in unusual places. Canterbury's newly opened Whitefriars proposes excellent shopping launching many retailers in a spacious, ergonomic and stylish area. Food from many places around the world can also be enjoyed. One of the best boutique hotels in Canterbury is the ABode Canterbury home to Michael Caines Restaurants.
