Private six hour tour of Dover and the surrounding area


Choose from the list to create your bespoke tour.
Dover Castle- A royal castle with origins from 43AD used recently in World War II when Sir Winston Churchill oversaw Operation Dynamo in the ancient tunnels beneath.

Leeds Castle - home to six medieval English queens & now beautifully restored. Today the castle has lovely grounds to visit.
Walmer Castle - much smaller than Dover Castle, this still retains a 'lived in' feel. The Castle and it's gardens were an enduring favourite of the late HRH Queenmother.

Canterbury Cathedral - Mother Church & seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury from 597AD, it attracted pilgrims as told in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sandwich- this ancient town has beautifully preserved houses from 14th century onwards- ideal place for an English Cream Tea including of course sandwiches!

Rye - A medieval town of cobblestones and lanes inspiring tales ancient smugglers & ghosts
