Canterbury, château de Leeds et Douvres en une journée au départ de Londres
C'est la parfaite journée à Canterbury, Douvres et au château de Leeds pour s’échapper de Londres. Lors de cette journée, votre incroyable chauffeur-guide vous fera vivre l'histoire dans notre luxueux minibus et pendant que vous parcourez Canterbury à pied lors d'une visite facultative gratuite !
La journée commence dès que vous quittez Londres et voyagez en direction de Canterbury, berceau des Contes de Canterbury de Geoffrey Chaucer. Profitez des récits de votre guide alors que vous vous rendez à la célèbre ville de la cathédrale. La cathédrale remonte à 597 après J.-C., et vous ne pourrez pas vous empêcher de remonter dans le temps dans cette ville imprégnée d'histoire, avec des ruines romaines et normandes, et des rues parsemées de jolies maisons à colombages des XVIe et XVIIe siècles.
La route continue vers le point le plus proche de la France en Grande-Bretagne continentale, Douvres. Là, vous pourrez vous promener le long des emblématiques falaises blanches. Avec des vues spectaculaires sur la côte, c'est une expérience immanquable pour vraiment découvrir l'incroyable paysage anglais.
La dernière étape est le château et les jardins de Leeds, où vous pourrez descendre directement du bus et commencer à explorer ! Le château se dresse à cet endroit à couper le souffle, construit sur deux îles dans un lac, depuis 1119. Votre guide vous contera l’incroyable histoire du château, qui a notamment été un bastion normand, la propriété privée de six reines médiévales d'Angleterre et un palais utilisé par Henry VIII. Il est maintenant l'une des propriétés les plus visitées en Grande-Bretagne.
Cette incroyable visite d’une journée offre un mélange parfait d'histoire et de paysages pour une journée loin de Londres, et vous serez de retour vers 18:30.

If you want to shop at Canterbury or spend hours at Leeds Castle, then you'll like this. But if you want to see the cliffs, nope. We only got 45 mins at the cliffs. It was our driver's last day with the company. He fought to stay awake for part of the trip, he gave very little commentary, he wasn't very nice. I was glad when it ended.
Mark was an entertaining tourguide, handled microphone problem w/humor. Would have liked more time to explore Canterbury, lots of repairs going on.
This was a great tour. Talk to the docents at Leeds ccastle. They will give you so much information to enhance your experience. It is Lovely and would love to go back and golf on the grounds. Make sure to visit some of the shops in Canterbury. I bought fascinators for my nieces at a great price. the Canterbury Cathedral is awsome. Liked it better than Westminster. Thought it was more spieitual. Will come back for a longer visit. Dover cliffs was also enjoyable. Need to come back and explore. The tour guide was excellent. Definitely recommend them for their tours.
The locations for this tour were great, however our tour guide/driver on the way there very distracted with the radio and navigation and constantly drifting out of his lane. We also got lost from Canterbury Cathedral to Dover, a half hour drive became 1hr 15 min. Overall it would have been better with a good driver.
This is little more than transportation to Leeds Castle, Canterbury and the cliffs of Dover. Keep in mind you need to pay for the admissions at Leeds and Canterbury Cathedral, which will add another £32 pounds to the trip. Got about 2 hours in Canterbury and Leeds, and hour in Dover. The cliffs were nice, just be prepared for moderate hiking along the cliffs to get the good views. Leeds was pretty nice, the grounds are beautiful. Canterbury Cathedral is very old and a lot is under construction right now, but the town is cute and lots of places to eat.
A nice day trip from London. Paul was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Nice locations. The Easter holiday prevented us from entering Canterbury Cathedral which was disappointing.
Booked this based on the excellent reviews and was not disappointed. The day started with us not finding the departure site by the time the tour was set to leave. Fortunately, our guide and driver, Scott, determined where we were enroute and picked us there. This was great service since we were already ten minutes late. Scott, by the way, is a blast. Funny, but very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Our group included two adults and four teens. Other members of the tour group included a married couple and two other young couples. Scott kept everyone entertained throughout the trip. One great benefit of this minibus tour was that Scott asked about our interests and accommodated the needs of the small group. A few highlights were lunch in a 500 yr-old pub, Canterbury Cathedral's choir practice during our visit and the excellent weather viewing the white cliffs of Dover. Tour was excellent throughout. If you ever read this review, thanks, Scott and England Experiences.
Loved this tour. I saw many posts saying you can not see the cliffs, but you most certainly can see them. We went for a wonderful walk along the cliffs and really enjoyed it. Leeds castle was also quite nice and we enjoyed Cantebury as well. Our tour guide was wonderful and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this.
A great small group tour! The guide was knowledgeable and accommodating. We saw all the high points and were treated well.
Absolutely loved how personalized this tour was. We were in a small group, so we got individual attention that you simply just can't get in a large tour bus. Would definitely recommend this experience!
I would recommend this tour if you want to get a feel for these three lovely locations in England. I enjoyed learning about them all. However, we did not get to spend much time in any one place. I would have loved to spend more time in Canterbury exploring the town, and hiking along the trails of Dover. Leeds Castle was nice and it has a wonderful history. Our tour guide was fantastic!
