About

Spend a day outside London exploring Kent and seeing some of the UK's best sites on this luxury coach day trip. With private entry to Leeds Castle, optional entry to Canterbury Cathedral, a visit to the moving Battle of Britain Memorial and a Thames boat ride, it's a fantastic option for ticking off many great sights in one day. 

London to Leeds Castle

Start your day by heading to Leeds Castle, once home to Henry VIII when escaping the plague that ravaged the streets of London. Exclusive to your tour, learn about the history of this impressive fortress and discover how the Tudors lived on a private visit with a professional guide.

Explore Canterbury 

Columns and arches that form part of the impressive architecture at Canterbury Cathedral in Kent.

On your next stop, take in the beautiful 12th- and 13th-century stained-glass windows that illuminate Canterbury Cathedral. Once you’re done exploring this medieval marvel, be sure to wander through some of the beautiful streets of Canterbury, which are full to the brim with historical significance. 

Marvel at the White Cliffs of Dover 

White Cliffs of Dover plunging into the blue sea on a clear day.

Then, arrive at the gateway to England and the world-famous White Cliffs of Dover. Enjoy sweeping views of the English Channel as you drive along the coast to reach your next destination.

Visit the Battle of Britain Memorial

Next, prepare for a moving visit to the Battle of Britain Memorial in an area steeped in history. Dedicated to the heroic and selfless deeds of the men who won the Battle of Britain in 1940, the memorial's central figure sits on a propeller boss surrounded by the badges of all the Allied squadrons and other units that took part in the battle.

Boating in Greenwich 

The Old Royal Naval College buildings in Greenwich sit behind shining water.

Return to the capital and the World Heritage Site of Greenwich in south London. With a bustling daily market, the Old Royal Naval College, Cutty Sark clipper ship and, of course, the home of Greenwich Mean Time, there is plenty to see in this part of the city.  

End your day trip by seeing London from a different perspective as you sail down the Thames aboard a boat from Greenwich to Embankment Pier.
