Leeds Castle, Canterbury, Dover (Entrance Fees Included) Itinerary
Take a fabulous tour of South East England by joining a group coach day tour from London. You will start the day by heading out to Leeds Castle, passing through Greenwich, home of the famous 'Cutty Sark' tea clipper and the Royal Observatory, and cross over the Greenwich Meridian. Leeds Castle was described by Lord Conway as 'the loveliest castle in the world' and is set in the middle of a natural lake, surrounded by 500 acres of parkland and gardens. You will be taken in before the doors open to the public, to experience its magic in an atmosphere of still tranquility. There will also be time to explore the castle grounds where you will find the ' Lady Baillie Garden' with views over the lake, an aviary and maze. You will then move on to Canterbury Cathedral, travelling through Kent, the county known as the 'Garden of England'. This magnificent Cathedral is the most important church within the worldwide Anglican faith. The central 'Bell Harry Tower' dates back to 1498 and the crypt to the 11th Century. Here you will hear the story of the shocking murder of Archbishop Thomas Beckett in 1170 and you will have some time to explore the narrow streets of Canterbury and have some lunch. Continuing on you will travel through the picturesque landscape of Kent dotted with unusual buildings and quaint little villages to your final stop Dover, where you'll see the famous White Cliffs standing 400 feet above sea level. Brooding above the White Cliffs is the sprawling Dover Castle still watching over the town 800 years on.
