Full day tour of Leeds Castle, Canterbury and Dover including FREE hotel pickups from central London!
Private Visit To Leeds Castle- Deep in the cascading Kent countryside sits Leeds Castle. Described by Lord Conway as ‘the loveliest castle in the world'. Set in 500 acres of magnificent landscaped parkland and surrounded by an idyllic island. Henry VIII retreated to Leeds Castle to escape the plague raging in London during his reign. Early arrival ensures an almost private viewing of Leeds Castle.
Canterbury- Discover this magnificent medieval city and centre of the Anglican Church. The line of succession from Augustine has seen 104 Archbishops uphold this prestige. Archbishop Thomas Becket was gruesomely murdered at Canterbury Cathedral in 1170. Henry VIII destroyed religious buildings to suit his needs and the Cathedral was no exception. Learn how the original cathedral was rebuilt in the 11th century and transformed into the captivating world heritage site that we see today.
White Cliffs Of Dover- Dover has been a port for over 2000 years and is the gateway to England. Come and marvel at the White Cliffs of Dover and the English Channel. See Dover Castle, which was a key film location in The Other Boleyn Girl, which saw the castle transformed into the Tower of London where Anne Boleyn was imprisoned
Greenwich- Dominating the Thames waterfront, the Old Royal Naval College was designed by the great Sir Christopher Wren. Greenwich is an outstanding example of 17th century baroque architecture.
