You’ll explore one of the UK’s best-preserved and best-looking castles on this trip. Despite sharing its name with the Yorkshire city, this place is 45 minutes’ drive from Dover, on the south coast of Kent. Picturesque Leeds Castle is set on an island in the middle of a lake, with rolling green gardens all around. After a 25-minute stroll along the scenic outdoor trails, you’ll cross the bridge into the castle itself. It’s been frequented by royals through the ages – King Edward I lived here in the 13th century and King Henry VIII used it as a home for one of his wives. You’ll roam around the chambers and halls inside, spying Medieval artefacts and paintings along the way. After you visit, you'll take a scenic drive back to Dover. Adult price from £48.
Want a whistle-stop tour of Dover’s most iconic landmark? This tour’s on the case. First of all, you’ll take a drive to Samphire Hoe. This beauty spot’s situated right at the foot of the famous chalk-faced cliffs, so you can take some up-close pictures. Then, you’ll head up to the top of the cliffs for another photo stop. This time, it’s the views out over the English Channel that are in the frame. Keep your eyes peeled for Dover’s famed castle, too. Adult price from £20.
You’ll get to know Kent’s postcard-pretty coastline on this tour. Deal – a prime example of an English seaside town – is first on the agenda. Here, you can potter round the shops, treat yourself to an ice-cream, and wander along the beach. Then, it’s time to continue on to Canterbury, where you’ll take a tour of the handsome city centre. You’ll see how Canterbury’s historical influences – including surviving Saxon and Roman features – blend with the city’s modern side. Then, finish up with the chance to snap some pictures of the famous cathedral, before the scenic drive back to Dover through the Kent Downs. Adult price from £26.
