The city’s only remaining medieval gateway (1380) has been Canterbury’s most controversial sight in recent years, opening and closing more than a parson’s bible. But in 2015 it was taken over by a private company who have reopened the museum inside which focuses on the building’s use as a prison. The views from the top are pretty good, but if you don’t go inside, you can always entertain yourself watching buses, wing mirrors folded back, as they squeeze through the medieval archway.
