HIGHLIGHTS OF THE KENT COUNTRYSIDE TOUR

These are some of the highlights that can be included in your tour of Kent:

Dover Castle

Dover Castle and the White Cliffs

Dover Castle sits impressively upon the famous White Cliffs of Dover. The castle is bursting with history. Explore the secret WWII tunnels, walk along the ‘White Cliffs’ and enjoy wonderous views across to France.

Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury Cathedral and City

Tour one of the oldest and most famous Christian structures in England, Canterbury Cathedral. It’s scale and architecture are impressive and it forms part of a world heritage site due to its solemn history!

Whitstable

Whitstable Seaside Town

Loved for its quirky shops, super fresh shellfish (oysters are a speciality here), and art scene, Whitstable seaside town is a must visit. Collect shells on the beach, go crabbing, or simply sit at a beachfront bar.

Chilham

Chilham Tudor Village

The charming village is so well preserved, you’ll feel like you’ve be transported back to Tudor England. Sample the local wine, amble the cobblestone streets, browse shops and visit the tearoom for traditional scones and jam.

Hever Castle

Hever Castle

A picturesque Tudor mansion, Hever Castle is most famed for being the family home of Anne Boleyn, the ill-fated second wife of Henry VIII.  Tour the castle, wander through the stunning grounds and get lost in the maze.

Down House

Down House

Step into the home where Charles Darwin worked and lived, including the room where he wrote his most famous book. Down House will allow you to follow in the footsteps of England’s great scientist and explore the award-winning gardens.

Leeds castle

Leeds Castle

Another castle with ties to Henry VIII. Leeds Castle is built on islands in a lake formed by the River Len, making it an idyllic setting to peruse. Most famed as the dwelling of Henry VIII’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon. The perfect site for a traditional English picnic and some R&R.

Don’t just take our word for it:

“I love getting out of the hustle and bustle of the city, away from the typical tourist routes, driving through beautiful green countryside and taking in fresh sea air.”
