Overview of your Dover tour:

On this tour we will explore the beautiful English countryside and will see the place where the event of 1066 changed the course of history in England and Europe as a whole. Walking through the cobbled lanes of Rye Royale and hearing lots of fascinating stories, I am sure, that you will be most certainly surprised with the concentration of living history packed into it. Diving even deeper into the history of England, we will visit Battle Abbey, which keeps fascinating me every time I visit it. The Abbey is the actual site of the pivotal Battle of Hastings, fought on 14 October 1066. The Abbey was built by order of William the Conqueror as penance for the bloodshed. We will drive through Hastings itself, which is now a popular seaside resort in the south of England, and will stop off to wander round quaint Winchelsea, which in medieval times was of great importance to the Crown. Winchelsea is the first purpose-built town in England, after Old Winchelsea was washed away during the Great Storm of 1287.

Your Dover tour itinerary

- From your chosen pick-up location, we will drive to Rye through a selection of picturesque towns and villages. - Upon arrival in Rye, we will stroll through the cobbled lanes, which have remained unchanged for centuries. Here I will tell you stories about invasions and smuggling, murders and royal visits. - After a short drive, we soon reach the thriving market town of Battle, with its Georgian buildings, interesting shops and cosy pubs. After lunch, we will visit the former Benedictine Abbey which was built on the site of the Battle of Hastings and see the exact spot where the last Saxon King was killed in 1066. -Before heading back, we will drive via Hastings, the famous seaside town that gave its name to one of the best-known battles of all time. We will also pause in Winchelsea, a hidden gem of a town that also retains its medieval appearance. - From Winchelsea, we will return to your drop-off point. Please note that this tour is completely customisable to your wishes.
