Private Tour to Canterbury, Dover and Leeds Castle From London
1. Private Tour of Canterbury:
Welcome to this private tour to Canterbury, Dover and Leeds Castle. In the morning we depart Central London early to avoid congestion and get to Canterbury before it becomes overcrowded. Upon arrival in Canterbury, your very own private tour guide will take you on a walk through the city, telling you all about it’s fascinating history. On the walking tour you will see The Westgate Tower, Marlowe Theatre, The River Stour, The Clock Tower, The Canterbury Tales Experience and Canterbury Cathedral. You will then have free time to go inside Canterbury Cathedral and explore the city. As it is a private tour, your guide will give you the option to stay longer in Canterbury if you want to have lunch, or purchase a packed lunch to eat on The White Cliffs of Dover.

2. Photostop at Dover Castle:
Just a short 30 minute drive past The Kent Wealds sees us arrive on the most iconic coastline in England. Arriving at Dover Castle, we stop to take a photo of the largest Keep in the country and hopefully get a glimpse of the French Coastline (weather depending). After a photostop at Dover Castle, we continue our journey along the coast to Capel-le-Ferne where your guide will enlighten you about The Battle of Britain. Here you can pay your respect to ‘The Few’ Pilots that took to the sky in 1940 to protect Britain against Germany’s imminent invasion. A 30 minute stop at The Battle of Britain Memorial gives you the perfect opportunity to stand on the White Cliffs of Dover.
3. Leeds Castle:
Our third and final stop of the day takes us to ‘The Lovliest Castle in the World’ according to Lord Conway. This stunning medeival castle boasts a water moat and an eclectic mix of old and new. This 11th Century fortress has been the home of multiple Queens of England, from Eleanour of Castille to Catherine of Aragon. Once home to Lady Baillie, Leeds Castle was transformed into a favourite weekend getaway for celebrities like The Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Jacqueline Kennedy. Aside from the castle itself, visitors also enjoy the beautiful gardens, the maze and the Bird of Prey exhibit.
