Greater London, United Kingdom

Walk in the footsteps of King Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon.

Be one of the few who discovers that Leeds Castle is located in Kent's beautiful countryside and is, in fact, within easy reach of London. (Originally known as 'Esledes' and not linked to the City of Leeds, north England!)

Avoid London's heavy traffic and save time and costs. - I will collect you by car at Bromley South station, which is less than 20 minutes’ direct train ride from London Victoria, covered by zone 5 Oystercards or Travelcards.

We will drive through the beautiful countryside of Kent known as the 'Garden of England', just 1 hour before arriving at majestic Leeds Castle.

Tour inside the castle and you'll be amazed by its magnificence. Walk through the stunning grounds to and from the castle, taking you a world away from the rush of any city.

Join me, a local who can tell you about the castle and the role it has played in England's history.

John was a wonderful guide and gave detailed excellent communication on how to arrive and meet up at the train station. He was very responsive and answered all of our questions before and during the tour. He was pleasant the whole tour as well as knowledgeable and making sure our family was seeing what we wanted and at our pace. Leeds castle was beautiful and historically interesting. The hedge maze is a must! We were there during a heat wave and John ensured we were staying hydrated and comfortable. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide and would certainly use him in the future if we are in the area again.

John England was an amazing tour guide. His knowledge of Leeds castle and the south of London area is remarkable. We had a lovely day with him and will definitely book him the next time in London. Thanks John!!!!

My son and I hired John for a day away from the city, and he made the day interesting with fun facts and plethora of stories throughout the journey. The castle is an amazing place to see, with plenty of artwork and ancient artifacts, as well as meticulously maintained grounds - and John displayed intimate knowledge of the place. John is a fantastic host and guide, who looked after us the entire time, and very considerate of hygiene, using a mask during the car ride and indoor areas. We both really appreciate that.

My family and I had a tour of Leeds Castle with John. He is an amazing tour guide with lots of knowledge. John had lots of tips and tricks in order to make the most out of our tour. We have a moody 5 year old with us, John was very accommodating and tailored the tour around our needs in order to keep our 5 year old entertained. I highly recommend a tour with John and I’m looking forward to booking tours with him on all our future trips to London!

John is a friendly and knowledgeable guide. He worked hard to pace the tour and information to our expectations. I cannot say enough about his knowledge base and his ability to gage how deep we wanted to go. We got just the right amount of historical information for our interest level. The day was beautiful and he made sure to show us great photo spots since we were very interested in taking pictures. I will be booking another John England Tour and highly recommend him!

We had a wonderful day at Chartwell and Leeds Castle with John. He was right on time and we had a relaxed, but full day. John is very professional and personable, and yet the day was more like spending time with a friend who was an expert on these wonderful historic sites. We took the train to Bromley South (less than 30 easy mins from Victoria station) and met John there, which meant we spent an entire day touring, rather than spending precious time with a local expert stuck in London traffic. Five of five stars John!!!!

The setting of the Leeds castle Kent with its moat n landscaped grounds was magnificent. It was full of history. I went on a private tour with John England’s private tours - he was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable, friendly, polite n personable. His driving was safe n his vehicle was very comfortable. I highly recommend John England’s private tours as it is very personalised, comfortable and luxurious and you don’t have the hassles of a bus tour of 20 -30 other tourists. John is a fantastic guide n he made my trip a very memorable one!

As a solo traveler, it was nice to have a private tour with John to Leeds Castle. He was punctual and provided very extensive directions on how to arrive at the meeting point. Courteous, friendly and professional from start to finish. We shared conversation during the ride to and from the castle. He arranged for disability accommodations since I had limited mobility. It was nice to have his expertise on the castle. John is conscientious of his presence and steps back to allow you the opportunity to sightsee in your own as needed. I felt like I was traveling with a friend. Amazing experience and I definitely will book more tours when I revisit London.

Beautiful Leeds Castle, a day trip from London, is a must see! Four of us ladies from CA and OR, USA enjoyed a fantastic day with John who is an excellent tour guide and conversationalist and new best friend! We can't speak highly enough of John and the memorable experience he provided us. His attention to detail and our needs was impeccable and thoughtful from start to finish. Thank you, John!
