A peaceful place for a stroll and always very colorful with flower beds being changed regularly throughout the year, a must place to see in the historic Canterbury.

A very nice place to stroll in, but watch out for pickpockets! Don't put down your phone, as someone might just pick it up and take it. Otherwise, a lovely place to walk around.

The river passes gently through the park, clear waters sparkling in the sun. You may see one of the punting trips. We enjoyed the wildflower bed in full bloom, view of west tower and the huge oriental plane tree.

Loved having a stroll through here. The upkeep of the gardens is beautiful. Really enjoyed finding a shady spot to sit & chill.

Lovely walk, lots of interesting things to see such as the oriental Plane tree. Jason Caires Taylor sculpture very subtle and not easy to spot, but lovely when you find it. The sculpture by the theatre is right n your face.
