A very pleasant park, and a nice place to avoid the hurly burly of the City Centre. As the plaque in the second picture shows, the gardens were laid out and donated to the public in 1936 by a very philanthropic chap called Williamson, whose family had lived in the adjoining Tower House for 50 years and in Canterbury itself for 150.

The building is now used as the Mayor's office and is not generally open to the public.

Address: Historical centre
