After lunch or dinner, so down to the gardens by the river and walk and watch. There is so much to see. Don't miss this attraction.

At the bottom end of the pedestrianized shopping street just by the westgate archway is the entrance to the beautiful and tranquil gardens and riverside walk. A great place to stop and relax either during a break in the shopping or a lovely place to visit on a fine day.

This hotel was really picturesque with a lovely river running through it. It is situated just off the high street and lies adjacent to the west gate of the city.

Beautiful unspoilt part of Canterbury with its quaint little bridges and meandering footpaths alongside fragrant flowers and crystal clear water. Great place to have a picnic suitable for everyone whatever age

Perfect for families there's something for every age: river punts, toddler and children's playground, beautiful flower and plant displays (Britain in Bloomington finalists 2016) and a river (with ducks to feed) runs through it too! Unmissable

These are pretty gardens in the heart of Canterbury, flower boarders very well kept river running through,you may be lucky and swans are visiting,There is even a punt in which your whisked away down stream Westgate gardens are the idea place for picnic, or just relax and watch Canterbury go by before attacking the shops again.
