The chapel and garden were slightly difficult to find (for some reason google maps sent us to a different location). We went to Canterbury Pilgrim's Hospital and got directions. Once we found it, the garden was so peaceful and the chapel was very nice. Worth...More

This place was recommended by the city tour guide. I also highly recommend it, especially after the hustle and bustle of walking around the busy high street and having to navigate between all the hundreds of visitors. The chapel wasn't open on my visit but...More

We had a wander over to the Chapel in hopes of getting a peek inside, however, it wasn’t open. There was very little signage to help us find it, but we did get some directions. It is a lovely and peaceful place. There were some...More

Only a small place but an interesting mediaeval building. Entry price is cheap and reflects the size of the place.

This is my favourite place in Canterbury - a beautiful, ancient sacred site dating back to the time of St. Francis. The gardens are a perfect place to have a quiet sandwich on a sunny day, or simply to enjoy the wild flower meadow. The...More

Worth the time to have a look, couldn't go in but a nice building to look at in a nice setting. It is set in a sort of garden area so you can go and just find a nice quiet place to relax nearby.

A very happy surprise it was to happen upon the Greyfriars Chapel and the Franciscan garden. It's a good place to rest and to be. A large field is sown with wild flowers every year. Yes, this is a very romantic and quiet haven within...More

Was lucky to visit a few days before the winter closure. Gorgeous surroundings and a oasis of peace in bustling Canterbury. The chapel was open and the visit free. Shame it closes from October onwards for the winter.
