Westgate Gardens Reviews & Ratings

  • Like stepping back into a Tudor pastoral. Beautiful riverside gardens, clear swift but shallow river with punts and archways to float under. It meanders through Canterbury. Very atmospheric and just quite lovely.

  • Wonderful place to visit in Springtime and the Summer because of the beautiful floral displays; the gentle flowing Stour river with its equatic wildlife,seeming not unperturbed by the many visitors that enjoy a stroll or,even a picnic on the grassy areas that are in abundance! If you like old ,yet well preserved architecture, you can see some good examples there. I can thoroughly recommend Westgate Gardens.

  • Beautiful. Lovely park to go and sit by the river on a sunny day which seems to always be clean and well looked after. They had organised an easter egg hunt when we were there which was enjoyed by all (young and old!) which was definitely a bonus!

  • The gardens are beautiful, the people who were there were very nice. The strong smell of cannabis may put some people off!

  • What a beautiful park, would have loved more time to see more of it. Very well kept. Do stop and look at the 200 year old Plane Tree xx
