Private Visit to Leeds Castle
This historic moated castle, surrounded by 500 acres of beautifully landscaped parkland, is situated in the heart of the Kent countryside. Unusually, it sits on an island, and its idyllic setting led Lord Conway to describe it as 'the loveliest castle in the world'. As one of the first groups to visit the castle, it will almost be a private visit!
A fascinating medieval city that has been the centre of English Christianity since St. Augustine was sent here by Pope Gregory in 597AD. The original church was rebuilt in the 11th century as the magnificent cathedral we will visit today. Of the 104 Archbishops to date, possibly the most famous is Thomas Becket, who was gruesomely murdered in the cathedral in 1170.
We will stop for lunch near the cathedral.
White Cliffs of Dover
This has been a port for almost 2000 years. We will see Dover Castle, the White Cliffs of Dover and the English Channel.
Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the Old Royal Naval College dominates the waterfront and is an outstanding example of 17th century baroque architecture. You will also be able to see the famous Royal Observatory, housing the Prime Meridian.
Thames River Cruise
We will take a delightful cruise that takes you from Greenwich, past superb riverside views of London, to Embankment pier.
