Leeds Castle

Set within 500 acres of parkland, Leeds Castle is renowned for housing a superb collection of medieval tapestries and furnishings. During your visit choose to:
  1. Embark on a self-paced walk around the castle's fairytale surrounds. Set across two islands and surrounded by a tranquil lake, Leeds Castle stands picture-perfect and an inspiration to countless artists
  2. Beat the crowds and take an early morning tour within the castle walls. Guides will be on hand to point out key points of interest including the aviary of rare birds, the vineyard and the intriguing maze (cost Adult £24.50, Child £16.50, Senior/Student £21.50).
Canterbury Cathedral
Travel through Kent County to Canterbury, the birthplace of English Christianity and home to the Canterbury Cathedral. A stop for lunch is scheduled, after you opt to either:
  1. Loose yourself down a maze of cobbled streets on a guided walking tour through the medieval city of Canterbury
  2. Venture inside the magnificent Cathedral for a closer look at its Gothic-inspired architecture and learn why it is the most important church in the Anglican faith (cost Adult £12.00, Child £8.00, Senior/Student £10.50).
Purchase entrance to the Castle and Cathedral at the same time and save (Cost: Adult £ 32.00, Child £ 25.00, Seniors £ 31.00)

White Cliffs of Dover

Before returning back to London by coach transfer, witness the spectacular White Cliffs of Dover, standing 400 feet above sea level. Sprawled on top of the cliffs, you'll find 800 year old Dover Castle towering over the town below.

Our tour guide, James, from Evans and Evans the local company was one of the best guides I have every had. Clear, intelligent, extremely knowledgeable on everything United Kingdom. He was organised and brilliant. Great trip!

Great trip to Canterbury. Loved Leeds castle. We could have spent more time there . We still wanted to see the maize. A nice stop off for photos of the white cliffs of Dover. Canterbury was very special

Leeds Castle is huge and beautiful, with a lot of real story inside.
Canterbury Cathedral is also awesome.
Cliffs of Dover, didn't go to the top but did visit a beach there.

We enjoyed this tour. Leeds Castle was beautiful and we had just enough time to look around on our own. Dover was nice, but not really worth the time to see the Cliffs and get ice cream because I didn't feel we had enough time Canterbury. For the Cathedral tour, we had to stay with our guide. She was good, but at the end we only had about 30 minutes on our own to continue to explore the Cathedral AND the town, which was quite quaint and appealing, before getting back to the bus. I had to choose so chose to do a little more of the Cathedral. This left me with about 10 minutes to explore the shops. It was a nice trip but when I return I would go back to see more of the town.
When tours go to multiple places, I've learned this is just the risk you take - too much time in some places, not enough in others. They can't please everyone! But our guide was knowledgeable enough and I would still recommend. It was a fun trip and I'm glad I went!

We enjoyed this trip very mush. Our guide, Celia, was very knowledgeable about all our stops, and also with other areas of interest along the way. It was really nice to have the option of ordering lunch ahead of time before we arrived in Canterbury I recommend it, good typically British home-style food with very friendly staff. If I would change one thing, I wouldn't do the inside tour of Leed's Castle. I felt like we were rushed through, and the tour focused on the 20th century restoration rather than the medieval history. I would've spent more time enjoying the castle from the outside, the beautiful gardens, or perhaps take a little boat tour of the moat. Our stop in Dover was also quite short, but enough time to enough the sights and take some photos.

The trip was nice, unfortunately the guide didn't know the Canterbury Cathedral wasn't open. The overall trip was ok, the guide was ok, but I had better on this trip. Leeds castle was great, but the photo stop for Cliffs of Dover and Dover Castle I could have done without. I would have visited Dover Castle.

Poorly organized, a tour guide more interested in the Japanese group that sat at the front. Before we could see what he was talking about we were passed, Everything was rushed, so having a guide that was 500 feet ahead was a waste. Bus accident on the way back, then when the guide got to us to find out where we would be going after he belched in our face, and laughed about doing it. Save your money. Never did see the Dover that's in pictures....too late
