The Gardens - one of Rochester’s best-kept secrets with its majestic Magnolia Grandiflora and view across what was originally the monastic herb garden. In this area visitors can now see the newly restored section of the Roman Wall, dating from c200AD, that once surrounded the Roman City of Durobrivae and was incorporated in the later buildings of the Monastery. Although only yards from busy Rochester High Street, the peace and tranquility of the garden provides a sanctuary for wild birds, squirrels and foxes, and, weather permitting, visitors to the Tea Rooms.
