Lady Wootton's Green
Ranked #44 of 109 things to do in Canterbury
Attraction details
Reviewed September 29, 2016

It's a well tended small area and in a most historic part of the city. There are many car parks around and easy to pop into, to sit if you wish, whenever you're there.
Nothing specific to visit, just to admire one of the very few places of " calm " in an otherwise busy area

a pretty little walk way leading from the Longport area of Canterbury towards the city wall, usually nicely planted and tidy,Kings School own the building and it is called St Augustine, you cannot visit the school site, good photo opportunity.

Pleasant garden with lots of history attached. Some ancient.. Some more modern (WW2). Lovely bronze statues and views around. We took a break here on our walk around the sights and enjoyed it.

Small garden with bronze statues of king Aethelbert and queen Bertha, the latter a Farnkish princess who hosted Saint Augustine's visit to Canterbury and refurbished for him a Roman temple as St Martin's church, the oldest church in England

If you stand in Lady Wootton's Green with your back to the cathedral in front is the majestic gate to Augustine's priory now King's school. Harry Potter fans will be in their element! However turn slightly to the left and that less showy red brick gate is actually the oldest gate in Canterbury. It's listed and closer inspection will show it's built with Roman bricks. The green has two beautiful bronze statues: Ethelbert King of Kent and Bertha granddaughter of Clovis of France. Bertha walked from what is now Christ Church Cathedral but was Ethelbert's palace site to St Martin's church. Do read my review of St Martin's church.
