Canterbury hasn't been the same since Henry VIII stripped and destroyed Becket's shrine. It used to be such a nice place.

Canterbury
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive
Warning: Listening to jazz excessively can cause a laxative effect.

I have visited both, and Canterbury is by far my favourite of the two. York Minster is impressive, but I found the interior way too brightly lit - which, in my opinion, ruins the atmosphere of a Gothic cathedral.

I also visited both pagan temple sites (yes, as an atheist, I can admit to that), but have been man more times in Kent (10 times at least, but 4 times on my way to London) than in Yorkshire (thrice, but twice on my way to Edimburgh)... I'd tend to agree that I also prefer Canterbury's, but more for musical reasons LOL (are there any prog groups from York???Tongue)
 
as for the cities themselves, I tend to prefer York, though, with its awesome shambles.
