Leeds Castle in Kent has been described as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’ – and with good reason, as you’ll discover on this day tour from London! You’ll get to visit the castle and grounds, and enjoy its tranquil setting.
En route, you’ll pass right over the Greenwich Meridian.
Canterbury Cathedral one of the oldest Christian churches in England, is a magnificent example of mainly Gothic architecture, built in mellow stone. Inside, the stained-glass windows illuminate intricately carved and arched stonework. After your visit, there will be time to explore the town of Canterbury.
A stop at the windswept White Cliffs of Dover will call to mind the wartime song, made famous by Vera Lynn, after which you’ll visit the haunting Memorial to The Few at Capel-le-Ferne. This site is dedicated to ‘The Few’ (the less than 3000 men who fought at the Battle of Britain, immortalised in Churchill’s speech: “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”) and is a thought-provoking visit, with a beautiful view.
