Why would pilgrims have gone to visit Thomas Becket's shrine at Canterbury?

In the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church was seen as being a large, extended "family", existing not only on earth (church militant) but in heaven as well (church triumphant). The saints in Heaven cared about those on earth, and those on earth addressed prayers to them in Heaven. Saints were not prayed to as "gods" or in place of God, but as men and women, who, by the example of their lives, were especially close to God. They were called upon that God might work miracles through them. Relics of saints were venerated, for they were tangible links to them, and as it was believed that holiness could dwell in all aspects of God's creation. Catholics, some Anglicans, and Orthodox Christians still venerate relics.

Thomas Becket was martyred because he defended Church rights against the wishes of King Henry II of England and died for his beliefs in that regard. People flocked to his shrine in order to obtain special graces and good spiritual merit which such visits or pilgrimages were believed to impart. For the same reasons, Christians made pilgrimages to places in the Holy Land as well. Pilgrimages connected people to their religious and spiritual history, and gave them a sense of "family" and belonging. Even today, people visit the graves of politicians, social reformers, and movie stars, out of that same human desire to "connect" to something larger than themselves.
