Tour Theme: Group Tours
This tour starts from: London
Duration: 1 Day - 10 hours
Our Cathedrals, Cliffs and Castles small-group tour takes you on a journey through history. You'll explore stunning countryside, dramatic coastal cliffs, and historic buildings. Our incredible guides will make history come alive whilst on our luxury mini-bus and as you tour Canterbury by foot! We leave London and head towards Canterbury, following in the footsteps of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales' characters who journeyed to visit the shrine of the martyr Saint Thomas Becket, regaling stories to one another along the way. You can leave the storytelling to your driver-guide, as you make your way to the world famous cathedral city.
The cathedral dates back to 597AD when St Augustine established his seat here and became the first Archbishop. You can't help but be taken back in time in this city steeped in history, with Roman and Norman ruins and streets dotted with pretty timber-framed 16th and 17th-century houses. Our route continues to the closest point to France on mainland Britain, for an opportunity to walk the iconic White Cliffs of Dover. With spectacular coastal views, this is a must-see for those interested in experiencing the incredible English landscape.
Next we'll visit Leeds Castle, you can buy your tickets as you book the tour, or you can purchase directly from your driver-guide on the day, so you'll be able to step straight off the bus and start exploring! A castle has stood on this breathtaking spot, built upon two islands in a lake, since 1119.It has notably been a Norman stronghold, the private property of six of England's medieval queens and a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon. It is now one of the most visited properties in Britain. Lose yourself in the maze and complete it to explore an incredible underground grotto, marvel at the falconry displays or even wander the unique collection of dog collars on display here.
