What You Can Expect

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

Canterbury Cathedral, England

Depart from your central London hotel or 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.

Good tour to get you out of London for a day. Canterbury was very interesting. Unfortunately, we were there on graduation day and main part of church was closed to tours.

Our tour guide, Steve, was great! My wife and daughter are still talking about this tour and Steve as one of the highlights of our 9 days in the UK. We had enough time to enjoy all three stops and the ride back into London on the Thames. Definitely worth the money.

The tour was very good and the tour guide knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Leeds is incredibly romantic and was excited to see the WW2 bunker as we passed the white cliffs of Dover. It was great to visit Canterbury and see its famous cathedral. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Great tour. Our tour guide, Steve, was great. He had to deal with a rude tour passenger and did so very well. He was entertaining and very knowledgeable. We loved Canterbury Cathedral the most. Leeds was also very nice. I would take a tour with this company again!

There were four of us in our group that took this tour. We thought it was wonderful. We loved everything. However we are all older and sometimes it was hard to keep up with the guide and we missed some things she said. It would have been great to have had a VoiceVox or Whisper so we could have heard everything she said. Otherwise it was a great day.

This was a wonderful day trip, nice to get out of the city and see a bit of the beautiful countryside. Leeds Castle is beautiful as is the Cathedral in Canterbury. Our tour guide, Sev, was wonderful, very knowledgeable and made the experience great!

Great trip, got us to some sights easily. Our guide was very good. Only disappointment was not having enough time at Greenwich to see the time/distance museum.

Great tour with an even better tour guide. The weather wasn't the best, so John helped make the day better by modifying, with everyone's approval, the tour timings. Canterbury and the White Cliffs of Dover are definitely not to be missed!
