Canterbury tours from London

Three guided Canterbury day tours from London including Dover and Leeds Castle

Canterbury Cathedral on a day tour from London

Canterbury Cathedral


Tours from London to Canterbury are full day tours combining Canterbury with Dover and Leeds Castle, both relatively close by.


The most popular tour option in terms of numbers includes a private group visit to Leeds Castle, before it opens to the public, then going onto a brief stop in Dover before visiting Canterbury. This is now the only tour option visiting Leeds Castle with Canterbury, so if Leeds Castle is important to you, this is the one to go for.

 

There is also a simple tour option from Anderson Tours that doesn't visit Leeds Castle, but instead makes a full day of visiting both Canterbury Cathedral and also a good amount of time at Dover Castle.


The last tour option small group tour, maximum 16 passengers, also omits Leeds Castle, instead visiting Rochester with its 900 year old castle, with a scenic drive through the Kentish countryside. This tour only operates April to October, while the two other tours run year round.


Canterbury

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 Beckett's head off.

 

Canterbury became the centre of one of the most important medieval pilgrimages in Europe.

Leeds Castle Premium Tours Canterbury, Leeds and Dover

Private tour: Leeds Castle

Leeds Castle although not the biggest castle in England is surely the prettiest with a fascinating history that stretches to modern times.

 

Dover

From here it is then onto Dover for a short photo stop of the famous white cliffs admired.

 

Canterbury

From Dover it's a short trip to Canterbury, the centre of Christian worship since it began in England. You will explore the famous Cathedral and get glimpses of the medieval centre of of the city, before it is free time to take lunch.

 

Greenwich

Last but not least you travel to Greenwich, famous for the meridian line but with a great naval and scientific heritage.

 

River boat cruise

Here you leave the touring coach for good, as after a short walking tour you will 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 Embankment Pier, just on from Westminster and Big Ben.
