Canterbury Tours From London

2 Guided Day Tours That Operates From London

Canterbury Cathedral

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.


In terms of tours from London that go to Canterbury, there really is only one itinerary that is offered throughout the year. This twins Canterbury with a visit to Leeds Castle. Leeds Castle is normally done in the morning, a lunch stop then made at Dover, then the afternoon at Canterbury.

Leeds Castle, Dover, Greenwich and Canterbury Tour (Full Size Touring Bus)

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 short photo stop of the famous white cliffs 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 and there is free time to take 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.

Leeds Castle, Canterbury and Dover Small Group Day Tour

Runs all year every Tuesday.

The tour explores the South East corner of England spending most of the day in the county of Kent known as the “Garden Of England".

Between the visits to Canterbury and Leeds Castle we 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! Our 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 you are not subjected to long hotel pick-up journeys around London and as a small group the 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 we can go places the big tours cannot and wherever possible we'll head off down a country lane to to show some hidden gem.
