Canterbury tours from London

Two guided day tours that operate from London

Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury Cathedral

Tours from London to Canterbury both include additional stops at Leeds Castle and Dover. One tour option includes a private group visit to Leeds Castle, before it opens to the public; the other is a small group tour which offers a more personalised experience.


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.


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


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.


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


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 Westminster Pier, right next to Big Ben.

Between the visits to Canterbury and Leeds Castle you will visit the nearby historic port of Dover, the closest port of England to France and as a result of long historical interest from ancient times right up to modern 2nd World warfare and the early pioneers of flight.


The small group tour difference

On this tour you will be travelling with no more than 16 other people - guaranteed! Purpose-built minibuses have large windows, good air circulation and clear PA systems so that your professional guide can escort you comfortably through our wonderful countryside.

The small group size means your guide can offer a more personalised guiding service. So don't hang back, ask your questions and you'll be helping the guide tune their commentaries to the interest of the group on board that day, every group is different!


Another advantage of a small bus is you can go places the big tours cannot and wherever possible the bus will head off down a country lane to show some hidden gem.
