About the gardens

Canterbury Gardens was designed in the Gardenesque style from the early 1900s. With beautiful gardens, plenty of shade and a magnificent rotunda, it is perfect for weddings, celebrations and gatherings.

Mature trees dot the extensive lawns and complement the fine perennial borders, parterre gardens and a rosarie. A path and bridge move through an avenue of weeping cherry trees to a raised rotunda with commanding garden views.

The venue has hosted Carols by Candlelight since 1940. It's also a popular setting for events during the year, including our Summer Music performances.
