Grade I listed church, one of two in the city centre parish of Canterbury and one of only a handful of Anglo-Saxon churches surviving in Kent. It is of exceptional importance for the survival of Saxon walling reusing Roman fabric, indicating a large Saxon church, plus a wealth of medieval fabric of various dates, including medieval roofs and an early 16th century chantry chapel with heating. It contains fine quality fittings including 15th and 16th century woodwork, 17th and 18th century wall monuments and stained glass by notable firms.
