What You Can Expect

Canterbury, Leeds Castle and White Cliffs of Dover Small-Group Tour from London

White Cliffs of Dover

Depart from central London in a luxury coach and travel to Kent, an area typified by undulating hills and farmland, fragrant orchards and grand country estates.

Make your first stop of the day at Canterbury Cathedral. Enter the magnificent cathedral at your own expense, and then enjoy a guided tour of its highlights, from the burial place of Henry VII to the site where Archbishop Thomas Becket was killed in the 12th century.

After some free time to explore Canterbury town and have lunch, return to your coach and travel to the nearby White Cliffs of Dover. Stop by Dover Castle for photos and hear about invasions, some successful and other not, as you take in the chalky cliff face. 

Your final stop of the day is at Leeds Castle, a 12th-century castle whose key attractions include the banqueting hall, library and the quirky Dog Collar’s Museum, which showcases the best in 17th-century canine couture. Following a tour with your guide, return to London, where your day trip concludes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Guide was great and shared a lot of history lessons in an entertaining way. He recommended Tiny Tims for high tea at Canterbury and that proved to be special. Leeds Castle is a beautifully preserved castle and the Canterbury Cathedral too is awesome. The White Cliffs were not all that white because of the green brush growing on them but still glad we got to see them. Our 16 passenger bus was brand new and very comfortable.

It was beautiful sunny day, wonderful tour with kind guide. Only 4 people came so was very small and friendly atmosphere. Canterbery was so pretty to walk and Leeds castle was lovely. This is easy way to travel many places in a day without moving stress. very satisfied wih this tour


4 star rating: Recommended April 2013

forget the white cliffs . makes it a long day. canterbury and leeds are enough and very worth the visit. just a tip the tour driver was knowledgeable but it is okay for a few minutes of silence. perhaps also keeping his opinions of other races to himself , he may offend.

Excellent day of sight-seeing. The highlight was Canterbury Cathedral. To improve this small group outing, I would allow double the time for touring Canterbury Cathedral and town and skip the White Cliffs of Dover. Seeing those was really no different from seeing photographs and stopping at the War of Britain memorial, while interesting, was not worth the time. I regretted the rush at Canterbury and feel I didn't get to see most of that great space well. Leeds Castle was well worth a visit. The driver was clearly inexperienced and lacked knowledge, although he was very nice to us and drove well.

The things you see on the tour are great - Leeds Castle is quite lovely. However, the tour guide we had was terrible. She arrived to pick us up a half our late you could say that could happen to anybody, but even before she was late, one of her coworkers mentioned she was always late, added an extra half hour to the Canterbury stop even though most of the cathedral was closed for a graduation, rushed us through Dover to make up time, so that was disappointing.

I mainly wanted to see the white cliffs, and was disappointed that the one overlook of Dover did not provide much of a view of the cliffs. Then I was really upset when we went to the Battle of Briton Memorial. After being there for about 15 minutes another group pulled in and the Guide directed his group to the other end of the memorial where they would get a good view of the cliffs. I dashed over there and took several pictures, ran back to our bus just as it was suppose to load. I asked the guide why he did not tell us of the view and he said he did not know about it. He was very good about relating history but not so much when it came to guiding.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2014

This is another tour that did not live up to what was being advertised! Canterbury Castle was closed so we didn't go there, which means we didn't get to walk around Canterbury,, and have lunch, Dover castle was closed so we stopped on the road and viewed it from a distance, didn't stop for a walk around the village of Chilham. and Admire its historic square and 1,400-year-old Yew tree, didn't go anywhere near there either, didn't get directed to the maze or the dog collar museum. So what did we do??? Went straight to Leeds castle, ate lunch in the hall there, saw the cliffs and stopped for the battle of Britain experience, then our tour guide took us back to London and took us on a rock and roll tour which was great. Bob the tour guide saved the shambles of a tour and pacified the other tourist admirably,
