Tour Itinerary:

The Leeds Castle, Dover, Canterbury and Greenwich day tour is a very varied tour with a lot packed into a busy day.

First stop is Leeds Castle where we are allowed access before Leeds Castle is opened to the public with our own private tour!. Leeds Castle although not the biggest castle in England is surely the prettiest with a fascinating history that stretches to modern times.

Its then onto Dover for a photo stop and the famous white cliffs to be admired.

From Dover its a short trip to Canterbury, the centre of Christian worship since it began in England. We explore the famous Cathedral and get glimpses of the medieval centre of of the city. There is also free time here for lunch.

Last but not least we travel to Greenwich, famous for the meridian line but with a great naval and scientific heritage. We leave the touring coach for good here as after a short walking tour we take a river boat from Greenwich right into the heart of London taking around an hour. On the boat you take in many historic sights along the river, even travelling under Tower Bridge. The tour ends at Westminster Pier, right next to Big Ben.

Courtesy transfer from your hotel

There is a free hotel collection from over 90 hotels in central London.

Separate coaches each cover a main Central London hotel district and transport you to Victoria Coach Station where you join the tour bus for your day tour. Full details of the hotel pick-up service are further down the page.

Leeds Castle

A professional guide is aboard the luxury air-conditioned touring bus the entire day and will provide commentary and guiding throughout. Leeds Castle, the first stop on the tour is about 90 minutes journey south east of London.

Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle opens to the public at 10:30 a.m. but we get in 30 minutes before and are taken on a private tour of the castle.

Described as the "loveliest castle in the world", Leeds Castle was once a Royal residence for six of Englands medieval queens, a palace of Henry VIII, and a retreat for the rich and powerful. The setting is simply idyllic.

The Norman castle was built on two small islands, in the middle of a lake, and is surrounded by a vast estate. Our day begins with a private viewing prior to the castle opening to the public. We will explore the chapel, galleries, courtyards and banqueting hall before taking time to enjoy the setting and wildlife, which includes wildfowl, black swans and the birds of the aviary.

Dover Photo/Lunch Stop

After about 90 minutes at Leeds Castle we make a brief photo stop in Dover. You can view the famous white cliffs from here with the historic Dover Castle sat on top of them.


Its now early afternoon as we climb out of Dover on the short trip to Canterbury.

Pulteney Bridge Bath

Canterbury Cathedral

The ancient city of Canterbury has been the centre of Christian worship for almost 1,700 years.

Its greatest treasure is the cathedral, infamous as the setting for the brutal murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170. When Henry II snapped "Who will rid me of this turbulent priest?", four of his knights rode to the Cathedral and sliced Becketts head off. Canterbury became the centre of one of the most important medieval pilgrimages in Europe.

Your ticket includes entrance to the Cathedral and also allows some free time to explore the atmospheric old town and find somewhere for lunch.

Greenwich & River Cruise To Embankment Pier London

Its now late afternoon and another hour or so's drive to Greenwich where we should arrive around 5 p.m.

Packed with exquisite parks, gardens, and architecture, Greenwich has strong connections with the sea, science, sovereigns and time. We will have time to take a look at the Cutty Sark, the fastest sailing ship of its time.

As the early evening approaches we enjoy a river cruise back to the centre of London. We will pass by historic sights such as the Tower of London, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, before arriving at Westminster pier where our tour ends.

The estimated time of arrival back in London is 7:00 p.m. Embankment pier is next to Embankment Underground and a very short walk to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.
