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. From Caesar to Shakespeare, some of history’s most important figures recognised the towering symbolism of the cliffs. 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

Pass By: Dover Castle, Castle Hill, Dover CT16 1HU England

Dover Castle is a medieval castle in Dover, Kent, England. It was founded in the 11th century and has been described as the "Key to England" due to its defensive significance throughout history. It is the largest castle in England.

This tour hardly covers Cliffs of Dover. It is nothing like what they show in the pictures. Leeds castle is ok not out of this world . Canterbury has a nice small town charm. but that is like the only thing on this tour that you might like. Our tour guide Kevin talked too much. I felt like he needed to pause in between.

The tour guide, Kevin, was really good and informative. Unfortunately the weather was bad and we didn’t go to Dover cliffs. I have been to many tours in UK and thought it was overpriced for not even a full day tour.

The tour was good and the guide was very informative. Unfortunately, the weather was not good ( ie it was raining and very cold) so we couldn’t enjoy the tour to the fullest
