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

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day exploring Canterbury and Leeds Castle with Dawn. She was very warm and friendly. Her knowledge of history was impressive and she knew how to share information with you without making it feel like a lecture. Our lunch in a local pub gave us a chance to sample not only some delicious local cuisine but experience some culture as well. Thank you Dawn for a great day!
