London is a wonderful city but there's more outside that is worth exploring. Come with me to the English countryside and experience its spectacular beauty on a private tour.
Hello, I'm John Coupland and it's my pleasure to show you the hidden gems outside of London. Want to see some wonderful castles, (such as Rochester Castle, featured here), and other places in Kent? With me, it's possible - and we can avoid London's heavy traffic too!
Perhaps you want something a little different and extra special? The castles and historic places in Kent have that truly authentic vibe you are looking for! Or how about Canterbury Cathedral? Medieval Ightham Mote is a hidden gem, described by David Starkey, (Britain’s leading historian), as “One of the most beautiful and interesting of English country houses.”
All possible on your private day tour!
Feel like a local and have a high tea in the beautiful countryside. I can take you to a historic and charming pub or tea house.
I can personalise your tour 100% to your wishes. Immerse yourself in the real England. You tell me what your interests are and I'll make some suggestions, with a quote of costs. ('This is the plan' in this listing is to illustrate ideas and costs here are simply indicative). Please see my other, more specific, countryside tours on the Withlocals' website.
