Canterbury Cathedral is currently developing plans for a wide range of initiatives and improvements under The Canterbury Journey, to radically transform the accessibility and sustainability of Canterbury Cathedral. It will safeguard an iconic building which embodies England’s story, increase the number and broaden the range of those who journey to it, and enrich their experience.
A new Welcome Centre will offer improved learning, hospitality and a hitherto inaccessible view of one of Europe’s most important churches. New trails will guide visitors through the Cathedral and its newly landscaped Precincts, interpreting their journey and revealing unseen treasures from Canterbury’s past. New visitors (including children and families) will join the journey as a programme of outreach to schools and communities unfolds. A new pass scheme will swell the company of contemporary pilgrims and deepen the Cathedral’s relationship with its neighbours. And the fabric of the Cathedral’s western end, currently endangered, will be restored and enhanced, allowing Canterbury’s journey to continue.
Canterbury Cathedral is currently seeking to appoint an Exhibition and Interpretation Designer to progress the design of exhibition and interpretation elements of the Canterbury Journey as part of the projects Round Two application to the Heritage Lottery Fund, which is targeted for completion and subsequent submission in early February 2016.
