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.
