What You Can Expect

Leeds Castle, Cliffs of Dover and Canterbury Day Trip from London with Guided Cathedral Tour

Explore Leeds Castle as part of your day trip

Hop aboard your air-conditioned coach in central London, and leave the city’s crowds behind as you journey into the English countryside on your day trip. On route, put on your state-your-art Vox headphones to clearly hear your guide’s commentary, and gain fascinating insight into the passing sights.

Travel through historical, maritime Greenwich, and glimpse its famous National Maritime Museum, Royal Naval College and 18th-century Royal Observatory, the home of the Prime Meridian, where the world’s time is set.

Then, head into the picturesque county of Kent, and arrive at Leeds Castle: a picturebook, 12th-century castle encircled by a moat and parklands. Head inside and take a private tour before the doors open to the public. Admire the opulent rooms filled with rich furniture, tapestries and artworks, and learn how the castle was once a residence of medieval monarchs. 
Stroll through the gardens, and perhaps navigate your way through the maze, a puzzle of geometric yew hedges.

Next, drive to the ancient city of Canterbury, home to UNESCO-listed Canterbury Cathedral: a center of Christian worship for nearly 1,000 years. Founded in 597 and rebuilt in the 11th and 12th centuries, this majestic church is one of England’s oldest. 

Head into this serene cathedral, and enjoy the special privilege of a guided tour in your large group, as you listen to your guide’s commentary via your headphones. As you explore, learn about the church’s bloodiest hour — the day in 1170 when four knights of Henry II stormed inside and murdered Archbishop Thomas Becket.

Back on your coach, continue through pretty villages toward Dover on Kent’s south coast. Here, snap photos of the famous White Cliffs of Dover, and visit the poignant Battle of Britain Memorial. Learn why this site is important to the English, and see England's largest castle, Dover Castle, rising from a hilltop.


Your tour finishes with a drop-off in central London.

Great Tour that gave us ample time in all places we visited. Highly recommended. The only feedback is the WiFi in the bus worked terribly, so don't expect to use it while in the bus.
