    St Augustine's abbey marks the start of Christianity in England as it was founded by St Augustine circa 597 AD.
    There is a museum on site which tells the story of this Canterbury World Heritage site and it is wonderfully peaceful to wander around the ruins.
    In the Summer this is the venue for open-air theatre which provides a romantic setting for Shakespearean plays.

    The only thing that would make this better is if the Abbey was actually still standing... way to go Henry VIII.  The ruins are pretty impressive though, and the complimentary guided tour gives more history of the place than you could ever put to good practical use.  For only a fiver you get to see the whole thing, so it's well worth your cash.  Expect to take about an hour to go through it, and do it on a sunny day when you can enjoy the outdoors - it's 99% outside, so it wouldn't be any fun if it's raining!
