Beginning this month, tourists visiting Britain's Canterbury Cathedral in Kent will be charged a $3.20 entry fee; $1.60 for children, based on $1.60 to the pound.

Canterbury Cathedral dates back to the coming of the first archbishop, Augustine, from Rome in A.D. 597, but the earliest part of the present building is the great Romanesque crypt built circa 1100. The building is noteworthy for its medieval tombs, including those of King Henry IV and Edward the Black Prince. Information: (01-227) 762-862.
