FULL Day Tours

 

Canterbury and Leeds Castle

The city centre is a very bustling area full of shops, full of people and it has also some entertainment in the streets.

This is where the Head of the Church of England, The Archbishop of Canterbury has its Holy base. Twice in its early history The Cathedral succumbed to the ravages of fire only to rise again like a monstrous phoenix from the ashes .

St. Georges Street , a pedestrian area of shops and trees situated at the end of town was nearly completely destroyed in one air raid in the Second World War. The town walls surround about a quarter of the City.

A visit to the Canterbury Tales Museum is recommended, re-living 14 th century life and customs, is like entering a time warp. Inside the historic building of St. Margaret’s Church you can step back over 500 years to join Geoffrey Chaucer ( England’s finest poet) and his colourful characters as they journey from London towards the shrine of St. Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral and enjoy their medieval adventure stories.

After this brief visit we continue our journey to arrive at Leeds Castle, 'The Loveliest Castle in the World'.

Leeds Castle is located in the south east of England and it is nowhere near the city of Leeds, as one might believe.

For the mature of age there is a “courtesy” land train, which motors up and down the main drive and will take you from the ticketing area to the entrance of the Castle.

The area embracing the Castle is a full 500 acres of glorious grounds with its moat surrounding the castle. The aviary is home to over 100 species of endangered birds while the Museum on the Castle Island features a collection of a very different kind – :“dog collars” dating back to the sixteenth century.

Flowers and foliage abound in the formal gardens - the Culpeper and the Lady Baillie Garden, while the maze with its secret underground grotto provides a challenging half hour (or more!)

The inside of Leeds Castle is a treat to the eye as the more rooms you see the more history you find.

Because these are individual tours, (up to 16 persons), the minibuses used for these is far more versatile than the usual large and cumbersome coaches, so we can take you to see places where otherwise many tourists undoubtedly miss out.

One other great advantage is that we can stop anywhere you choose rather than the pre-arranged, obligatory stops tourists have to do when in larger groups.

The tour will last approximately 8 and half hours departing from your Hotel at 09.00 returning to the hotel by 17.30.
