Leeds Castle, Dover, and Canterbury Cathedral Day Trip from London

London – Leeds Castle – Dover – Canterbury – Greenwich – London
Enjoy a Leeds Castle private tour before the castle opens to the public!

Leeds Castle was home to six of England’s medieval queens, not to mention the royal residence of Henry VIII. The setting is simply idyllic. The Norman castle built on two small islands in the middle of a lake is surrounded by a vast estate. Our day begins with a private viewing prior to opening. We’ll explore the chapel, galleries, courtyards and banquet hall before taking time to enjoy the natural fauna, including wildfowl and black swans.

You’ve heard of the White Cliffs of Dover; now is your chance to see them. Following our scenic drive along the old coastal road, we make a stop in Dover, an historic port with a magnificent 12th-century castle.

The ancient city of Canterbury has been the center of Christian worship for almost 1,700 years. Its greatest treasure is the cathedral, infamous as the setting for the brutal murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170. When Henry II snapped “Who will rid me of this turbulent priest?,” four of his knights rode to the cathedral and sliced Beckett’s head off. 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.

Packed with exquisite parks, gardens and architecture, Greenwich has strong connections with the sea, science, and sovereigns. We’ll have time to look at Cutty Sark, the fastest sailing ship of its time. We’ll cruise the River Thames and as the early evening arrives, we’ll gently glide back to the center of London, passing by historic sights such as the Tower of London, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
