The Westgate Gardens are near the Westgate Tower. They are a delight to walk around at any time of the year as the gardens are beautifully maintained and there is always something new to see. Situated next to the Great Stour river you can enjoy a walk through the park and if you are feeling energetic continue to walk along the path on the far side by the river for miles. On warm days it is good to just relax on the lawns and soak up the sun after a busy day in the city centre.

fabulous manicured park with glorious river flowing through it. perfect for a picnic on the bank with your feet dangling near the water. There can be a few drunks about but they are harmless and hide in a group to themselves.

We visited on the first warm and sunny day of the year. The blossom was coming out on trees, the daffs and violets were out and the river walkway was busy with strollers - a sheer delight.

The Friends of the Westgate Parks are really transforming a nice place to visit into a very beautiful and pleasant place to visit. A calendar of events has been published outlining numerous activities for all the family throughout the year. Great place with a lot of history.

Westgate Gardens really are stunning in the summer. But also a lovely break away from the busy city life of Canterbury. Take a stroll by the river and relax, well worth walking through on your lunch break :)
