Canterbury's most popular park has been restored into attractive gardens with monuments and memorials, a bandstand with summertime concerts, a central fountain, a tearoom and a children's maze.
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).
