Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

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. 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.

Really nice tour, the bus was really clean and comfortable.
Our guide was really prepared.
Maybe you should say that Dover cliff are really far from the stop and you can’t see anything you aspected.

This tour was the highlight of our trip to London over the 2017 Christmas holiday. The tour was operated by Evan Evans and the bus was comfortable with plenty of legroom I am 6'0, wifi, and USB outlets for charging your phone/camera. We had plenty of time at each stop and the guide could not have been more professional. She even worked her magic at Leeds Castle and got permission for the bus to drop off/pick up at a spot much closer to the actual entrance rather than dropping us off in the coach park. We were provided with ear pieces and receivers which allowed everyone to clearly hear her excellent and informative commentary during our visit inside Canterbury Cathedral and Leeds Castle.

Travel from London's Victoria Coach Station to Leeds Castle was pleasant but took longer than normal - due to accident on the highway, driver had to take alternate route. Leeds Castle and the surrounding area is beautiful. Lots to see and explore here. Made our way to Canterbury but were not able to tour the Cathedral. This was quite disappointing but we spent our time walking around the city. There was a special meeting of priests in the Cathedral so all tours were cancelled for the day. Then on to Dover to see the White Cliffs. We spent some time walking around and took pictures before heading back to London. Guide and Driver were very nice and informative.
