Westgate Towers Museum

England's largest medieval gateway, built in 1380 as part of Canterbury's city wall.

Between 1453 and 1869 it served as the city prison and visitors can observe the turret cell-chambers with their manacles. A panoramic view of Canterbury can be seen from the battlements, and the main chamber houses a museum.
