Finish on a fun note, traveling back to London on a sunset Thames River cruise.
  • Explore Leeds Castle on a guided tour before the general public enter
  • Waste no time with prebooked Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral entry
  • See more out-of-London sights in one day than you would do alone

What to Expect
From London, travel south to Leeds Castle, a fortress often described as England’s loveliest castle. Popular for its colorful history, as well as its looks, the castle gets busy but beat the crowds with an early-access tour. Follow a guide on a private group tour and then enjoy free time to explore the expansive gardens, lake, and maze. Travel onward to the nearby White Cliffs of Dover, the sweep of chalk rockface that lines the English Channel. Then, head to Canterbury Cathedral for a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, followed by a lunch break in Canterbury itself. Your journey back takes in one last stop in Greenwich for a walking tour, where you listen to tales of the royal borough’s maritime heritage. Later, return to London Embankment Pier via the river with a sunset River Thames cruise.

Good and informative guide. We can only have lunch after Canterbury visit at 1430. This is too late from when we started the journey at 8. We could have lunch first before the cathedral visit.

Our guide for this tour was pretty boring, and only gave facts on the bus. At the sites, we were on our own to explore, which was fine. There was no set time for lunch, so you did have to sacrifice time at the sights to eat. The tour ended in a very strange way. We all just got

This was a good tour. I had a friend tell me, "don't go to Dover, there's nothing there". But we didn't actually stop in the town of Dover. We stopped at the Battle of Britain Memorial, which I enjoyed. There was a view of the white cliffs from there. Dover Castle looked
