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 8:30 am on an air-conditioned coach and relax while you're 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 tour 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 12th and 13th century. 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. Then our picturesque journey continues with a view of the White Cliffs of Dover in the distance, part of the English coastline standing 350 ft (120 m) high. On the outskirts of Dover, we'll also see the Battle of Britain Memorial.
The next stop will be Greenwich, declared a World Heritage Site, where we'll take a relaxing sightseeing cruise down the River Thames from Greenwich to Embankment, sailing past Tower Bridge, The Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral.
The cruise will disembark in Thames Embankment around 6:30 pm.
The activity takes place with a guide that speaks in English, although it may occasionally be done in two languages.
