Historic Westgate Towers Museum to reopen
The historic Westgate Towers Museum in Canterbury will reopen its doors to the public for the summer months tomorrow.
The city council has been very keen to reopen the attraction to continue the work of local businessman and entrepreneur Charles Lambie following his death in January. There have been discussions with the executors of his estate to allow this to happen.
The museum will be open daily between 10am and 5pm until September. Entry prices will be in line with those at the council's other museums in the city, with children and Residents Card holders going free. Any existing tickets with a six month expiry bought under Mr Lambie's guardianship will be honoured.
The City Gaol Café, which Mr Lambie created as part of his redevelopment of the building, will not be open.

Executive member for culture, Councillor Ann Taylor, said: "There was a collective shock in the city when the news came of Charles Lambie's death, but we hoped it would be possible to carry on his wonderful work with the Westgate Towers Museum, because it is one of our most historic buildings."I'd like to thank the executors of Charles' estate for their help with getting the museum open. It means our residents and visitors have another great attraction available to them again."
It's yet unknown what will happen to the Museum in the long term. The council will make a decision on this in autumn after assessing how successful the summer opening has been.
