Pop in your state-of-the-art Vox headphones and listen to illuminating commentary from your knowledgeable guide. Admire the gorgeous English countryside as you travel to Leeds castle, an ancient fortification located amid 500 acres of parkland.

On arrival, opt to explore the glittering lakes and beautiful gardens of the castle’s environs independently, or choose to beat the crowds with an early morning tour of the fortification. Allow your attention to be directed to priceless tapestries and opulent accessories as you stroll the castle’s chambers, and attempt to conquer the mystifying maze in the grounds.

After thorough exploration, return to your coach and travel to Canterbury, birthplace of English Christianity and home to Canterbury Cathedral. Enjoy a brief interlude for lunch and then choose to navigate the charming labyrinth of Canterbury’s medieval quarter on a guided walking tour, or opt to head inside the Gothic cathedral to delve deeper into its turbulent and fascinating past.

Next, venture to Dover to gaze at the natural spectacle of the region’s White Cliffs. Capture photographs of the arresting coastal landmark and marvel at the cliffs that stand 400 feet above sea level. See the 800-year-old Dover Castle on its cliff top perch and then return to your vehicle for the relaxing journey back to London, where the tour concludes.

Itinerary
Stop At:  
Canterbury Cathedral
A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Canterbury Cathedral is both a serene place of holiness and beautiful tourist destination. As the Cathedral of the Archbishop, the spiritual leader of the Church of England, Canterbury holds a special place in British history. No ordinary Cathedral, Canterbury has a long history that is often described as ‘England in Stone’; from the role of its Archbishops in the Magna Carta to the murder of Thomas Becket after a power struggle with the King of England, Canterbury’s history is intertwined with that of England. Founded by St Augustine in 600 AD, the Cathedral today is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England, and the first building in the country to be redesigned in this popular style in 1774.
Duration: 45 minutes

Leeds castle was the best part of this tour. Plenty of time to view castle and grounds. Canterbury portion was interesting but rushed based on trying to fit in lunch. Cliffs of Dover portion was the main reason we signed up for this tour but turned out to be a disappointment because tour only took us to a distant location along the port from which we were only able to see a small portion of the cliffs. Stop was only long enough to take a quick picture. In retrospect should have done a little more research on this tour. Our tour guide Geoffrey and bus driver were very professional and informative; also went out of their way to accommodate their guests.

Our guide Kevin made this tour an absolute blast!!!! He was a wealth of information and even taught us a little Japanese on the trip as well. Leeds Castle is your perfect ideal of a castle to visit down to the suits of armor and the moat and the black swans. Just fantastic. Canterbury castle was also amazing to visit with the unbelievable stained glass and crypts. Kevin was a wealth of knowledge all throughout the tour. Even though we did not make Dover due to a shutdown at the port causing a 4hr back up Kevin kept the entire bus engaged. The delay was causing us to get back late and he knew we had theater tickets for that night and managed to get a cab to meet us on the way back to get to the performance. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.

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!

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.
