Make your way to the meeting point in central London for an early morning departure. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out on the scenic journey through the Kent countryside to Leeds Castle.

Arrive at the castle for an early morning tour and receive a regal welcome with a glass of traditional mead. Enjoy a guided tour of the grand Tudor castle before the crowds arrive and hear all about its fascinating history, from the time of William the Conqueror to its most notorious former resident, Henry VIII.

Continue to Canterbury, where the star attraction is the UNESCO-listed Canterbury Cathedral. After admiring the cathedral’s Gothic facade, head inside to marvel at the beautiful stained glass windows.

After tucking into a packed lunch, continue to England’s southeast coast to see the mighty White Cliffs of Dover, looking out across the English Channel. Hop out to take photos of the dramatic seafront and see Dover Castle, before returning to London.

The final stop of the day is Greenwich, a lively London neighborhood on the banks of the River Thames. Learn about its rich maritime heritage and see landmarks including the Old Royal Naval College, Royal Observatory, and the 19th-century tea clipper, Cutty Sark.

Finish the day with a scenic boat cruise along the River Thames and admire London landmarks like the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, and Big Ben from the water. Arrive back in central London around 6:30pm, where your tour ends at Embankment Pier.

Enjoyable day-trip to multiple locations

This all-day excursion was a fun (but understandably hurried) way to see a variety of sites in southeast England at a reasonable price. Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral were the highlights, and the high-speed boat trip from Greenwich up to Embankment Pier was an excellent...More

Leeds Castle was wonderful! Also Dover! Canterbury Cathedral, Greenwich. Sept. 11, 2018

Tour guide Ruth was a good speaker and well informed. Leeds Castle visit could not have been time better spent. Dover was wonderful. Canterbury Cathedral was disappointing due to construction and the graduating class closure of the nave. Not enough time in Greenwich, but good...More

Best way to see these locations.
