Westgate Gardens - Review

Westgate Gardens, Canterbury Reviews

  • 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.

  • Lovely day looking around the gardens. Parked at toddlers cove (my how that has improved!) and walked through along the river Stour. The whole area has been worked on and tidied up with walks created to the Dane John gardens too. The statue of the bull is very impressive, representing a bygone era when the former tannery dumped sludge in the area, hence the name tannery fields. The meadow area is very good.

  • A beautiful and relaxing gardens with historical river and buildings. An ideal place to forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday whows. Have lunch, get lost in a book or simply unwind. Lots of seating and well litter picked. Real shame that all the bins were overflowing on the third visit hence five star's to four.

  • Lovely place to spend time with family, friends or just to pop in for a short nap. Beautiful flowers, lovely atmosphere, you can take a tour in the gondola or just feed the ducks. Relaxing place

  • A wonderful place for a relaxing walk along the path of the flowing waters.. you see greenery and lots of flowers around especially during the spring time🌻 Lots of place for kids to play around in the park.. there are 🚣‍♀️ boat rides available too for making it all the more fun😊 Nice place to take pictures too😊😊 We enjoyed our visit here and so shall you😊
