The Canterbury Tales’ first ever series of Comedy Tours has proved so popular, the award-winning attraction is relaunching them next month (June).
The tours have been delighting visitors to the cathedral city with a twist of historic humour since their launch in April. From 7 June to 27 September, there will now be two performances every Saturday at 3pm and 6pm.
Join Nicholas the necromancer and his clumsy assistant Nigel on a jaunt through the historic streets, meeting the colourful characters of Canterbury’s past that have contributed to the city’s heritage. Chat with Chaucer, mingle with Marlowe and enjoy a little banter with Becket!
The tour, which lasts 60 minutes, begins at The Canterbury Tales visitor attraction and is suitable for audiences aged three and over. Tickets are £8 for adults and £6 for children and concessions.
Combined tickets including both admission to The Canterbury Tales attraction and the Comedy Tour are now available at £12 for adults and £10 for children. For more details or to book, visit www.canterburytales.org.uk.
Based in the heart of the city, The Canterbury Tales brings to life five of Geoffrey Chaucer’s best-loved stories with tales of love, romance, jealousy and trickery, vividly recreated with all the fun and excitement of Chaucer’s original tales.
Admission prices for the attraction only are £8.75 adults, £6.75 children (aged 5-15), and £7.75 concessions. At certain times of year and for certain events, rates may vary. The Canterbury Tales is operated by Continuum Leading Attractions, who manage a host of visitor attractions around the country and most recently launched Coronation Street: The Tour in Manchester.
