Who We Are

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” and 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 and related subjects. Many of the gifts have been designed exclusively for us and are based on the cathedrals fabric and architecture. Several ranges are award winning. The shop is also well known for a popular range of tapestries. CEL also caters for the many Cathedral visitors who want a good souvenir of their visit.
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.
