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)

Out tour guide Andy was very knowledgeable with the sites we went to and he was very good about keeping everybody on time and in an orderly fashion. The trip to Dover was rather short, but it was a beautiful site to see. Well done trip and I would do it again!

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

Excellent excursion, Lesley and James were great hosts. Ask for them. Very knowledgeable and informative. Made sure our excursion was the best experience of our vacation.

Overall, this was a very good tour. The first stop, Leeds Castle, was beautiful. We went through the castle fairly quick and then spent time walking the grounds. The second stop was Canterbury and we took a quick walk through the Cathedral and then spent some time in a few of the local shops. We took the option to do lunch with the group at a small restaurant in Canterbury for I think 12 pounds each. The lunch choice was either chicken with a gravy or fish and chips. We both had the fish and it was very overcooked. We weren't thrilled with the cleanliness of the restaurant either. Since you do lunch before seeing anything else in Canterbury, we were disappointed to see how many other options there were and how easy it would have been to find something better on our own in the time given. My recommendation to others is find lunch on your own. After Canterbury, we headed to Dover for 15 minute stop for pictures by the water. We would have liked the tour to include going to Dover Castle, even if it was just a quick stop to see the outside. It felt like we came such a long way to Dover and didn't really get the benefit of spending time there. Nevertheless, we would still recommend this tour and did enjoy it overall.

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!

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.
