Summary:


Visit to Leeds Castle
Leeds Castle  – live it, love it! Deep in the cascading countryside of Kent sits Leeds Castle. Described by Lord Conway as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’, 500 acres of magnificent landscaped parkland surround the idyllic island. Henry VIII retreated to Leeds Castle to escape the plague raging in London during his reign. Early arrival ensures an almost private visit of Leeds Castle.

Canterbury
Canterbury – discover the magnificent medieval city and centre of English Christianity. The line of succession from Augustine has seen 104 Archbishops uphold this prestige. Archbishop Thomas Becket was gruesomely murdered at Canterbury Cathedral in 1170. Henry VIII destroyed religious buildings to suit his needs and the Cathedral was no exception. Learn how the original church was rebuilt in the 11th century and transformed into the captivating cathedral and world heritage site.

White Cliffs’ of Dover
The gateway to England! A port for over 2000 years, marvel at the White Cliffs of Dover and the English Channel. See Dover Castle, a key film location in The Other Boleyn Girl, which saw the castle transformed into the Tower of London where Anne Boleyn was imprisoned.
