Stop At: Leeds Castle Penfold Hill Leeds, Maidstone ME17 1PL England

Located in Kent, ‘The Garden of England’, lies Leeds Castle, a beautiful medieval castle frequently referred to as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’. With 500 acres of landscaped parkland to explore and impeccably maintained gardens to enjoy, it’s easy to see why this beautiful castle was a favoured castle of King Henry VIII, who gifted it to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon.

In its 900-year history, the castle has been home to no fewer than six queens and served many functions, including acting as a garrison, prison and the stately private home of its most recent owners. Learn all about this and more as our expert tour guide brings its fascinating story to life.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Canterbury Cathedral, 11 The Precincts, Canterbury CT1 2EH England

A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Canterbury Cathedral is both a serene place of holiness and beautiful tourist destination. As the Cathedral of the Archbishop, the spiritual leader of the Church of England, Canterbury holds a special place in British history. No ordinary Cathedral, Canterbury has a long history that is often described as ‘England in Stone’; from the role of its Archbishops in the Magna Carta to the murder of Thomas Becket after a power struggle with the King of England, Canterbury’s history is intertwined with that of England. Founded by St Augustine in 600 AD, the Cathedral today is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England, and the first building in the country to be redesigned in this popular style in 1774.

Duration: 45 minutes

Godfrey and Tony were awesome! Godfrey was very knowledgeable. He also planned out our day so we would be able to see everything in daylight. As a photographer, I really appreciated that extra thought.

We took a train and walk a lot a never found the meeting point. It’s better adding a building place or station inside any building. We lost all that money. I hope refund all that money. We came from United States and lost our money.

Liked Leeds Castle the most. Weather was just wonderful. Superb maintenance exhibits and upkeep. Staff were very willing to give information. Canterbury Cathedral too was a beautiful experience. Ancient and steeped in history. Our Guide Mr.Kevin kept the tourists engaged throughout the bus journey with his vast knowledge of British History.
