Perfect site to visit after the Cantebury museum. There is the fountain at the entrance but it is the exensive gardens and canals beyond, full of large, old trees which are a MUST VISIT.

Walking the gardens is just a real treat and the fountain is gorgeous. It is not a typical fountain, but I liked it. I would definitely recommend the walk and enjoy all the park has to offer.

Fountain has been restored to its original beauty and is unlike anything else. Close to the entrance it is a feature of the Gardens and tours depart close by.

Beautifully restored to its former glory. Would recommend that you see this lovely fountain - fountain does not run at night but looks awesome lit up.
