Situated in the heart of the city, the Westgate Gardens are spread across an area of 11 acres.

Sit back and absorb the tranquil beauty of the garden and its wildlife. During summers, the garden proves to be an ideal setting for open air events and exhibitions.

  • I live at Canterbury for a year. It is a very lovely town. One of my fave is Westgate garden esp during summer time, when you can sit next to the river and enjoy a picnic. OH don't get to check out 2 human statue hidden under the river near the bridge located next to the main entrance. !

  • What a beautiful walk alongside the river, Punt is available which is super. The gardens themselves are really pretty, stopped and had a coffee and homemade cake (yummy), very reasonable price and was served by two delightful young ladies ~ all in all a wonderful peaceful, pretty time. Definitely take a picnic next time.

  • What a beautiful day to walk stop and take in the sun and beauty of the gardens. Well done to all those who keep and tend them so well.

  • Stunning sceneries with flowers all over in autumn, combined with clear river making the place so beautiful I wished the garden is in my backyard. Walking distance from Canterbury West Station. Great spot and a must for travellers.

  • Very cute walk along the river, especially in the summer with all the flowers in bloom. Plenty of places to picnic, either along the river or the little park space next to it. There is also punting available by the west gate, with several boats, although it isn't self punting. Definitely worth a stroll, not a long walk.
