For visitors who are spending a couple of days in Canterbury a short walk out of the city centre to the Dane John Gardens / mound are worth a morning stroll after breakfast. It’s well signposted on the tourist maps and is closer on foot to the shops than you may think. One side of the gardens is bordered by the old city wall which can be walked along to the Dane John Mound (which is easily spotted by the obelisk) which is one of highest points of the city commanding excellent views. There is also a unique centre marble fountain in the park, a bandstand and plenty of grassed areas.
