“Berthas walk”

Lady Wootton's Green
Ranked #44 of 109 things to do in Canterbury
Attraction details
Reviewed January 28, 2017 via mobile

Fantastic history here . Bronze statues of Queen Bertha and her king and husband. From the Quenine gate in the city wall Bertha would walk to St Martins church the oldest still in use in this country. There is the story and a map showing her course across Canterbury to enable her to worship at St. Martins church. This being a place of worship way back into history. Well worth a visit it's easy to find on the ring road running round the city wall of Canterbury.

This garden marks the historic route of Queen Bertha, from her palace (now site of the cathedral) to St Martin's church. You can get a sense of history here. More information is at the website of the Canterbury Archaeological Society ---- where you can also find out who Lady Wooton was!

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.
