Children encouraged to explore Canterbury Cathedral

The project will start on Monday Credit: Canterbury Cathedral

Visitors with children to Canterbury Cathedral are able to borrow 'Explorer Backpacks'.

They can be picked up from volunteer hosts in the nave. The backpacks provide a fun and interactive trail.

Inside the backpacks are sketch pads and crayons, binoculars, magnifying glasses and magnetic compasses – all to help young explorers investigate many of the beautiful and extraordinary places and objects within the Cathedral.

The project runs from Monday 14 August to Friday 1 September.
