From London to the Quaint Streets of Canterbury

Hop into a luxurious and spacious coach at one of the pick-up points in London and begin your journey to Kent. Meet your guide at the first stop – the city of Canterbury – inhabited since Paleolithic times and filled with a rich history. Here, your guide will lead you to the World Heritage Site of Canterbury Cathedral. Explore this magnificent cathedral, an important pilgrimage site during the medieval England era, and the site of the infamous murder of Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1170. Feel free to explore this architectural wonder which is a result of the fusion between two architectural styles: the Romanesque style and the Perpendicular Gothic style.

Visit the Fairytale-Like Dover Castle

Step into the vibrant world of Henry II’s medieval royal palace, Dover Castle. Immerse yourself in life at the 12th-century court, and climb to the roof of the Great Tower to soak in the panoramic views over the huge medieval castle. Follow your guide into the secret wartime tunnels and enjoy this unique experience. Hear the story of the 1940 Miracle of Dunkirk from your knowledgeable guide. Before ending the tour, view the grand White Cliffs of Dover, nicknamed the 'Key to England' due to its position over the English Channel. Your guide will lead you to a vantage point, a short walk from the coach drop-off point, for you to get a complete view of the magnificent White Cliffs of Dover.
