A Tour in the Garden of England to TWO World Heritage Sites


This Shore Excursion is in the Garden of Kent in the English Countryside taking in 2 World Heritage Sites on this fun 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 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 return to Dover Cruise Terminal reflecting on a memorable tour experience.

A Recent Review of this tour

5 stars +....David shared his vast knowledge of English history in and around Dover. He was the perfect gentleman, interesting and very accommodating. We needed to change the time of our tour the day before and he even showed up early. He adjusted the itinerary to our whims, longer and shorter times at venues. He even added several extra stops once he realized what our interests were to enhance our day. He and the tour were SPECTACULAR and we will always fondly remember our 8 hour tour with David.
