The Westgate Gardens can be found close to the City centre, just next to the West Gate Tower. The eleven acres of public gardens provide an ideal setting for a gentle stroll along the banks of the River Stour.
A wonderful way to capture the magic of the river is through our candlelit evening tours! These tours are provided solely for our group markets, usually with a minimum number of ten participants (subject to a minimum charge).
Open to all and free to visit, one of the UK's finest collections of Masonic artefacts will take you on a surprising and informative interactive journey through the history of Freemasonry in Kent and beyond, dispelling myths along the way.
