Greyfriars Chapel and Garden

6a Stour Street Canterbury CT1 2NR

Set in hidden gardens which make a beautiful picnic spot in the centre of Canterbury, Greyfriars chapel was the only part of a Franciscan friary to survive the dissolution, perhaps because the building also serves as a bridge across the stream. The narrow windows break up the flint walls, patch-worked with red brick where it's been repaired in a higgledy-piggeldy fashion over the years - all part of the charm of this place. Recently re-occupied by four friars, it’s a lovely, tranquil spot and a fine old building.
