Layover Tour in the English Countryside


This Layover Tour option provides a Day Excursion in the English Countryside to conclude at the Dover Cruise Terminal.
We visit 2 World Heritage Sites on this day of exploration.
Canterbury Cathedral is the oldest and most famous place of Christian worship in England - founded in the 6th century this visit will provide travellers with a fascinating story of pilgrimage and a shocking event of murder on the altar.
Lunch can be enjoyed at a traditional English pub in the county of Kent - the 'Garden of England' before heading down to one the world's most iconic coastal defences - Dover Castle.
This medieval stronghold was founded in the 11th century and we shall investigate some dramatic sieges plus Dover's role in 2 World Wars with a special focus on Dunkirk and Operation Dynamo.
We shall then transfer to Dover Cruise Terminal reflecting on a memorable Day Excursion experience.

A Recent Review of this tour

David allowed us to customize this tour to our specific needs -- we had lived in Kent many years ago and wanted to show our granddaughter where we lived, our pub, the White Cliffs of Dover and Canterbury Cathedral. David knew so many interesting details we had never known and he took care to show us everything. This was a long but comfortable day in the 6-passenger London black cab. Even though I had suffered a recent back injury, David ensured our comfort, moved at our pace and offered continuous help
