The Guard Chamber, The Pound
One of the most unique venues in the South of England. The Guard Chamber occupies the central chamber of the 600 year old Westgate Towers, the gateway to the historic city of Canterbury. It is perfectly placed at the gateway to the city, just 5 minutes from the Marlowe Theatre and Canterbury West Station with its high speed link to London.
The Guard Chamber has had many uses throughout its long history including the city gaol, gaol chapel and the 100 year old museum which was opened in June 1906. The Museum & Viewpoint are open every day for you to enjoy spectacular views over the city and explore the Towers rich history.
The Guard Chamber is up a very narrow flight of stairs and has no wheelchair access unfortunately.
