One of the most popular day-trips from London includes a visit to Leeds Castle, one of the most beautiful fortifications in the world, Canterbury Cathedral, where Christianity was established in England, the impressive White Cliffs of Dover and a relaxing sightseeing cruise down the River Thames from Greenwich.
Leave central London at 8:30am on an air-conditioned coach and relax while you are taken southeast towards Leeds, a small town 60 km away from the capital.
Leeds Castle was described as “the most beautiful castle in the world” by Lord Conway. It was established on two idyllic islands in the heart of Kent and it has 200 hectares of land. The day-trip includes a private visit inside the palace to discover this landmark’s long history. You’ll also be able to try a glass of mead as Henry VIII would have.
The next stop will be Canterbury, a striking medieval city renowned for its Cathedral. Canterbury Cathedral is a medieval masterpiece that preserves many original details from the twelfth and thirteenth century. The archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered by four knights in the Cathedral in 1170.
After the visit to the Cathedral, you’ll have time to wander around and have a bite to eat. The tour includes a packed lunch to make the most of your time.
Continuing your picturesque journey, the coach will head to the White Cliffs of Dover, this part of the English coastline stands 350 Ft (120m) high and is a marvelous place to take photographs. The tour also includes a visit to Dover Castle, a medieval fortress very near the Channel, where the film The Boleyn Sisters was filmed.
The next stop will be Greenwich, declared a World Heritage Site, which is packed with emblematic landmarks like the Old Royal Naval College (designed by Christopher Wren), The Royal Observatory, where the prime meridian is, and the Cutty Sark, a fascinating nineteenth century tea clipper.
The tour finishes with a relaxing sightseeing cruise down the River Thames from Greenwich to Embankment, sailing past Tower Bridge, Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral.
The cruise will disembark in Thames Embankment around 6:30pm.
