It is not always entirely accessible, but it is a unique way to see a lot of what makes the city special. As the city grows and is discovered by more and more people every year, this exploration is a desirable break from the rush...More
Was looking for something different to do in Charleston and heard about the Gateway walk. It is a short walk (like 3 or 4 blocks, from Archdale to Church season) through gardens and graveyards in Charleston. Got a map from the hotel concierge. It is...More
I would never have walked down this path without TripAdvisor. As you walk around the historical streets of Charleston, you see dozens and dozens of gated courtyards and walkways. All of them, but this one, are private that take you to someone's personal home.
We have been coming to Charleston for the past 12 years and never knew about this walkway until this year. You can google a map of it. It is a beautiful walk. The graveyard at the Circular church was our highlight on it. Unfortunately the...More
The gateway walk is a fun area to explore. If I hadn’t read trip advisor I wouldn’t have found the place. It is worth a deviation from Kings street. Once you enter the gates you are transported into a small secret garden!

Out of everything we did in Charleston I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the Gateway Walk the most - it ended up being my absolute favorite attraction.
Firstly, it’s free. Secondly it’s absolutely gorgeous. Thirdly, it’s very exciting, like you’re taking...More
Somewhat hard to fine, sandwiched between two stores but cute. Walk though beautiful iron gates, down a tree-lined pathway to a cemetery (which I find beautiful). It’s quite overgrown but still beautiful and right next to an Orthodox Church. Expect 10-20min at the most unless...More
