  THE WEST GATE
by whitecliff62
 
 

This is one of the original ways into Canterbury and is also part of city wall which used to go right around the city. It was built by Archbishop Sudbury in 1380 and was used as a prison for many decades. Now it is a musium and you can go to the top to take some stuning photos of Canterbury. The traffic still flows through the gate today, in fact i used to work just down the road from here and my van just used to squeeze through, but on a couple of occations i have hit the wall and lost my mirrors hehehehehehehe, but don't tell the boss

Address: on the juntion with st,peter street

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
