A good short stretch of the wall from the footbridge at the Canterbury East Station into town. It overlooks the Dane John garden. It must have indeed been a stronghold back in the day.

A nice little walk on something so historic is amazing to do and you can get a good look at Dane John gardens.

What remains of the walls are next to a busy noisy ring road around the city.Nice views inside to the ancient park and the burial mound. You can walk along a new pathway along the top.

If this isn’t too late - head for Fenwick’s near the bus station for the main entrance.
