Stop At: Leeds Castle Penfold Hill Leeds, Maidstone ME17 1PL England

Located in Kent, ‘The Garden of England’, lies Leeds Castle, a beautiful medieval castle frequently referred to as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’. With 500 acres of landscaped parkland to explore and impeccably maintained gardens to enjoy, it’s easy to see why this beautiful castle was a favoured castle of King Henry VIII, who gifted it to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon.

In its 900-year history, the castle has been home to no fewer than six queens and served many functions, including acting as a garrison, prison and the stately private home of its most recent owners. Learn all about this and more as our expert tour guide brings its fascinating story to life.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Canterbury Cathedral, 11 The Precincts, Canterbury CT1 2EH England

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

Stop At: The White Cliffs of Dover, Upper Road Langdon Cliffs, Dover CT16 1HJ England

Soaring 350ft above the crashing waves of the English Channel, the White Cliffs of Dover are an instantly recognisable landmark of Britain.

Traditionally the site where British royalty would welcome overseas visitors, the cliffs served as an intimidating reminder of Britain's immovable resoluteness sense of independence.

Duration: 20 minutes

Overall, this was a great tour. The guide, Monica, shared lots of interesting info and history which really added to the experience. However, if the tour used the full time as advertised (we got back to London at 6, not 7pm as booking stated) and had allowed more free time in Canterbury, this would have added so much more to the trip. It is such a lovely city but you can barely see anything with only an hour for free time/lunch. Dover was very underwhelming and a waste of time.

The tour guide did a great job explaining the history about the castle and the cathedral. Additionally on our way to the sites, she gave history about London on certain area where I thought it was nice to know!

The tour covers three unique landmarks in a day and is a good value. Monica was our guide and she was excellent. She provided a lot of historical tidbits on our journeys to each destination. There was adequate time at each destination. We thoroughly enjoyed this day trip.

Leslie was a great tour guide who made all mobility levels and interest levels feel comfortable about the tour. Some wanted to rush ahead and others wanted to take more time. She checked in after the stops on how things went.

Amazing sights and wonderful guide Chris made this day a perfection. Gorgeous Leeds castle 🏰 with marvellous gardens and a maze, Canterbury Cathedral with its intriguing history and breathtaking architecture and interior, as well as the beech of Dover with a splendid view on White cliffs and castle exceeded my expectations.
