What You Can Expect

Leeds Castle Private Viewing, Canterbury and Greenwich Day Trip from London

Canterbury Cathedral, England

Depart from Victoria Coach Station, and unwind during the drive to Leeds Castle, roughly one hour away. Built as a Norman fortress in the 12th century, the castle has a long, colorful history, from its time as a royal palace for King Edward I in the 13th century through to the American heiress, Lady Baillie, who was the castle’s last private owner. 

Enjoy early entry to the castle, so you can explore its buildings and grounds before it opens to the general public, and head inside with a guide for a private visit. Explore the bedrooms, chapel, banquet halls, galleries and courtyards. Then make the most of free time to wander around the gardens, lake and maze.

When the time comes, return to your coach and travel along the coast to the White Cliffs of Dover, a towering cliff face made of white chalk. Learn how the striking cliffs, which lines part of the English Channel, were the entry point for past war invasions, and then continue to Canterbury.

In Canterbury, take a guided tour of Canterbury Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the Christianity’s most important churches. You’ll also enjoy free time to have lunch (own expense) and explore Canterbury Old Town.

Return to London by way of Greenwich, a London borough notable for its maritime history, as the birthplace of many English monarchs from the House of Tudors, and of course, Greenwich Mean Time. Take in the grand sights, from palaces to parks, on a walking tour. Then, return to central London in the evening and conclude your tour with a sunset cruise on the Thames River.

Your tour concludes at Embankment Pier.

I was very happy with this tour. It was just the right pace with the perfect amount of sightseeing. Leeds Castle was beautiful. The tour of Canterbury Cathedral of the time for lunch in the town was lovely. Going to Dover and seeing the white cliffs was really special. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient. The boat ride from Greenwich was a fun way to end the day. I highly recommmend this tour.

Loved it all....so many wonderful places on the tour. Fell in love with Leeds Castle, would have enjoyed more time there. Canterbury was delightful and finding a festival made it even better. The Greenwich area was quite a walk with lots of history.

Loved Leeds Castle! Great tour of the castle, but it helped they were decorating for a flower show and maximizing the assets of the castle. Canterbury Cathedral was worth seeing and great gift shop. The Greenwich stop was very informative, but the boat ride at the end made the tour extra special. What a great way to view the city and snap some fabulous pictures!

I had gone with a group of 10 women from my church and let me tell you the tour was more than expected. Everything was very well organized. The Leeds Castle had a lot of WOW factors to it must go again with my husband. Dover was beautiful my husband and I will try to go there for our anniversary next year. Canterbury was amazing the guests of a wedding got caught in a rain shower, but everyone was smiling. The walk to Greenwich was a bit of a walk but when you get to the top of that hill that overlooks all of London, it was well worth it. And the river cruise was very nice. Our guide Danisha? and driver were EXCELLENT!!!
