Dane John Gardens, Canterbury Reviews

  • Such a good place to hang out with friends, but only really good when it's sunny. Always able to find somewhere quite private to sit away from people.

  • My wife was here for 3 years and never visited. Roll on 20 years and we make it at last. Lovely park. Toilets. Sneak out from the centre of Canterbury for a break.

  • Nice grounds quite near to both the City centre and and railway station (Canterbury East). Have several festivals on during the summer season usually free of charge. Worth a visit if you are yin the area.

  • Be aware of this place, especially at night. It is out of reach of CCTV cameras and local criminals know it. We made this mistake with my girlfriend. Talking in our native language was enough as excuse to threaten us by knife and wishing us "all the best". Local police told to us, that we should be in areas were they have cameras. It means city centre. They also told us, that we can not use anything for our protection. They guide us to use e.g. perfume instead of pepper spray. Perfume!!! Check also crime index of UK. You are not safe in this country, be prepared for life threatening scenarios. And pray to god, that police will come soon if you call them, cause all other "cards" are going to have aggressor.

  • Love walking on the old city wall and it's nice to have a quiet spot of green away from the hustle and bustle. Kids enjoy playing in the maze.
