This walk through Canterbury passes many of its famous landmarks from the times of Christopher Marlowe - the playwright and poet who was born in Canterbury in 1564, the son of a shoemaker. His groundbreaking use of blank verse and dynamic plot lines paved the way for William Shakespeare, yet he is remembered also for his roistering lifestyle, a heady mixture of scandal, religion and espionage. Although it is widely believed he met his end in a brawl in Deptford, the truth may yet turn out to be stranger than fiction.
