Leeds Castle is less of a medieval stronghold than it is a palatial countryside estate. Often referred to as 'the loveliest castle in the world', its unique riverside position and extensive parklands lend it a fantastical atmosphere and some of the best photo opportunities outside of London. The castle itself has been used as a countryside retreat by Henry VIII and as a dwelling for six of England's queens. Stunning royal furnishings, fascinating historical exhibits, and a multitude of architectural wonders make Leeds Castle an unmissable British icon.
After your castle visit, you'll get the opportunity to explore the city of Canterbury and its famous cathedral. This idyllic place is peppered with trickling rivers, thatched cottages, and cobbled streets. Admire the handsome Georgian buildings as you travel through the town to its star attraction - Canterbury Cathedral, seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The architectural grandeur of this stunning building will take your breath away.
Before you head back to the capital, the coach will take you for a short visit to the white cliffs of Dover to take in the distinctive views. Take a walk along the beach and take in the afternoon air before getting home in time for supper.
