Very interesting history of the chapel and the associated 'hospital' (see it with a guide!) and the gardens are a haven in a busy city.

The gardens are a great place to sit and relax with lunch or a drink. There is an excellent view of the Cathedral spire from the gardens....a great photo op!

It was informative the ladies welcoming and I learnt a lot about the Franciscans and Poor Clare connection.

A hidden treasure, tucked away behind a guest house and across a little bridge. A lovely places to sit and the chapel is of historic interest too.

After living in Canterbury for almost two years I can't believe I've only just discovered Greyfriars chapel. The gardens themselves are well kept, although aren't the nicest in town. Having said that, the chapel and surrounding area is lovely. Admission into the chapel is free. Would definitely recommend a visit!

A great place to have a rest, eat your packed lunch and take stock. Well maintained and a delightful place to stop and ponder "what next?"
