These gardens are beautiful and a must see when you are in Canterbury. The trees and flowers are lovely and there is a nice picnic area. The little river flows through it which is so clean you can see the fish in it. A lovely...More

In the glorious sunshine it was so nice to stroll through the gardens with my baby boy in his buggy. The gardens are so beautiful - clearly very looked after ( I even witnessed the gardeners in action!) and with the river clean and flowing,...More

The care that is taken in Westgate gardens to create beauty and colour, is amazing. The staff are very creative and do a wonderful job and all we need to do is look at it and enjoy it. It never ceases to make me smile....More

The River Stour runs through the park and against the backdrop of the last remaining gate tower and beautiful flowers, it is the perfect place to stop and chill or have a stroll.

A lovely little walk along the river and the garden. Great to just spend time in the sun and the lovely ducks!

A quiet and peaceful park. Perfect for relaxing, reading, picknicking next to the river Stour and the historic center of Canterbury.

A beautiful spring day clear blue skies ideal for a stroll through Westgate Gardens situated not surprisingly just outside the west gate entrance to the city. The path goes through some formal planted areas and some less so, beside the Stour river where punts glide...More
