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.
