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

I dont usually like coach tours but this one was great! Chrissie was our guide and she was very engaging and knowledgeable. Our driver, Paul, was also great! Leeds Castle was lovely. Canterbury Cathedral was breathtaking. Chrissie did a great job leading us on a tour of the Cathedral. We were lucky that our group was relatively small (27). Dover was only a photo stop but it was beautiful.
