The whole place was delightful the staff amazingly well informed and the chapel had a really lovely feel to it. Very good value for £2 and well worth a visit

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Only knew this existed after going on the Canterbury Historic River tour earlier in the day... free entry (donations welcome) a little piece of history hiding in the middle of the town!

A lovely gardens, just off the main high street. Visit early in the day and you will find them a little haven of tranquillity.

“Nice little place”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This is not the sort of place you'd travel far to see, but if you're in Canterbury, it's a charming and beautiful place, straddling the river and surrounded by lawns and gardens. Very nice.
