Tour Details

For a comprehensive London day trip like no other, take a tour of the English countryside. Roam the grounds of Leeds Castle, see the Cathedral in Canterbury, and enjoy the scenery of Greenwich before cruising back to London upon the River Thames. Join your friendly and knowledgeable guide for a day of fascinating history and exquisite scenery.

Tour Leeds Castle before the throngs of tourists arrive. This famous castle is an idyllic landmark, situated on two islands within a serene lake. During your private Leeds Castle tour, let yourself be transported back in time to walk along the medieval hallways, where Henry VIII and other powerful kings once ruled. Stroll through the banquet hall, galleries, and chapel before stepping outside to experience the lush gardens. Keep your eyes open for the majestic black swans that call these islands their home.

From here, you will continue to the coast to visit the famous white cliffs of Dover, overlooking the straights between England and France. On a clear day you can even see the coast of France. Dover itself is an historic port with a magnificent 12th century castle overlooking it.

Next, visit the ancient city of Canterbury, which has been a center of Christian worship for almost 1,700 years. Admire the architecture in this charming village with its renowned cathedral, infamous as the setting for the brutal murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170. Canterbury became the center of one of the most important medieval pilgrimages in Europe, immortalized by Geoffrey Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales. Your ticket includes entrance to the Cathedral and also allows some free time to explore the atmospheric old town.

Then drive to the charming town of Greenwich, packed with exquisite parks, gardens, and architecture. The town has a long connection with the sea, science, sovereigns and time. We will have time to take a look at the Cutty Sark, the fastest sailing ship of its time. As the early evening approaches you will board a river boat and gently cruise back to the center of London. You will pass by historic sights such as the Tower of London, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament, before arriving at Westminster pier where your tour ends.

Please Note: Due to severe traffic congestion in and around the port, a consequence of the ongoing industrial action, the stop in Dover may be removed from the itinerary without notice
