Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral and Dover
- Day trip (destination A to B)
- Hotel pickup included
- Led by a Blue Badge guide
- All entrance fees included
Arrive at Leeds Castle before the crowds arrive for an exclusive private viewing of the 12th-century castle and grounds. Leeds Castle is picture-perfect, set in a shimmering lake and surrounded by idyllic greenery that spans 500 acres (202 hectares). Inside, admire a superb collection of medieval furniture and tapestries and Impressionist art, and learn how the castle has traded hands over the centuries. Stop by the bird aviary and try your hand at the castle's popular maze formed by towering hedges.
Next, head to Canterbury Cathedral, a stunning UNESCO World Heritage–listed Gothic church built in the 11th century. Canterbury Cathedral is considered the birthplace of English Christianity, so it comes with some fascinating history. With your Vox headphones, your guide has the unique privilege of leading your large group into the quiet cathedral for a tour of the treasures that lie inside.
Re-board the coach for a drive through the Kent countryside, known as the Garden of England, with its quaint villages and pretty landscapes. Reach the coast to admire the White Cliffs of Dover — towering chalk-white cliffs overlooking the historic English Channel. Learn why this site is so symbolic for the English, and look up to see England's largest castle, Dover Castle, looming on the hilltop.

This tour was a beautiful drive around the English Countryside. Our tour guide Rob and driver Mark were skilled and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The one thing I would recommend would be to get the bus deodorized. The bus had a very strong odor of BO. Other than that no complaint

Leeds may be the most majestic of the royal homes that are open to tourists. Cantebury is a wonderful place, and I say that not even being able to get inside as there was a 200 hundredth anniversary service for Waterloo the day I visited. The cliffs of Dover are fantastic and a real testament to the bravery of British fighters in WWII.
