Dover - Canterbury Cathedral & Leeds Castle (full day)

A short journey from Dover through the heartland of the county of Kent, known to many as the “Garden of England”, brings you to the historic and picturesque city of Canterbury. The wealth of Canterbury was brought in by the visiting pilgrims, who were immortalized by Chaucer in his ”Canterbury Tales”. Canterbury's famous cathedral has an interesting history and houses the tombs of many famous archbishops along with the Black Prince and Henry IV. Your in-depth walk through the cathedral will be conducted by resident vergers or their staff who will bring to life the exciting and colourful history of this superb example of medieval craftsmanship.

Enjoy a typical pub lunch in a traditional country inn.

Situated on a raised island in the middle of a lake, Leeds Castle is the oldest and most romantic castle in England set in 500 acres of beautiful grounds and parkland. It was built by the Normans in 1119 and was then a royal Palace for over three centuries. It most famous owner, Henry VIII was responsible for turning Leeds into a truly Royal Palace and creating its magnificent apartments.

Re-board your coach for the return journey to Dover.
