Westgate gardens

things to do in canterbury

Situated alongside Westgate Towers, the city’s 600-year-old gatehouse, Westgate Gardens has been a public open space since the Middle Ages, making it one of England’s oldest parks. Part of the gardens is an official ancient monument site because it covers the remains of the old Roman wall and London road gate. The river, with its ever-present ducks and summertime punts, is just one of the features which makes Westgate Gardens special.  In the spring the gardens are a mass of flowering bulbs.
