What you can expect

Take a culture-packed journey to famous sites outside the city limits with convenient transportation and an expert guide leading the way. Visit the picturesque Leeds Castle, marvel at the white cliffs of Dover, take a pilgrimage to Canterbury, and cruise down the River Thames to conclude your day.

Your first stop is at idyllic Leeds Castle once home to infamous Henry VIII and his 6 wives. The Norman castle was built on two small islands, in the middle of a lake, and is surrounded by a vast estate. Your day begins with a private viewing prior to the castle opening to the public. Explore the chapel, galleries, courtyards, and banqueting hall before taking time to enjoy the setting and wildlife, which includes wildfowl and black swans.

Continue your tour with a trip to Dover where you can take in the incredible view of the famous White Cliffs. Next you follow in the footsteps of millions as you make the pilgrimage to Canterbury which is the inspiration for Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. See the intricate architecture of the inside of the cathedral and hear the tragic story of Thomas Beckett in whose honor the pilgrims visit.

Your last stop is Greenwich Palace which is packed with exquisite parks, gardens, and architecture. Take a look at the Cutty Sark, the fastest sailing ship of its time. Then as the early evening dawns cruise back to the center of London, passing by historic sites, before arriving at Embankment Pier where the tour ends.
