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

Tour guide Chrissy rambled senselessly about dog paw blisters on the Canterbury pilgrimage, new housing developments on green land vs brown land and which roadway we were taking. Not a great deal of info but a very big lot of words. She does have a lovely voice.

The three sites provided a good variety of experiences and our guide was very knowledgeable. My one complaint is with the title of the tour. There is no guided cathedral tour. We were lead to the cathedral and our guide provided information outside the cathedral but she did not guide us through the cathedral. The title is misleading!!

Hearing the story of Canterbury. Our tour guide, OMAR, was FANTASTIC!!!! I was disappointed in the White Cliffs…..that was my reason for booking this tour, but you really need to experience seeing them from a boat. I think 2 hours at Leeds Castle was too long. I would love to book another tour and have Omar as my guide and Courtley as my coach driver. They were really great! Thank you Omar and Courtley for a wonderful day.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour, but our favorite part was visiting Canterbury Cathedral and the city of Canterbury. Chrissy was a wonderful tour guide and we couldn't have had a better experience.
