Overview of your Dover tour:

This tour combines two of my favourite places in the southeast of England. The Cinque Port of Rye with its quaint cobbled lanes has seen many events throughout its long, turbulent history. On our walking tour, I will bring the ancient town alive by telling you stories about invasions and smuggling, flooding and shipwrecks, murders, and royal visits. After traveling through some of the most beautiful countryside of East Sussex and Kent, you will find yourselves at Sissinghurst, a world-renowned garden and iconic refuge that is dedicated to beauty. Sissinghurst Castle comprises a sixteenth-century tower and other buildings, surrounded by the most famous twentieth-century garden in England. Vita-Sackville West, a poet and garden writer, took responsibility for all the planting within the 'garden rooms', which her husband Harold Nicholson, a diplomat and author, laid out in the 1930s. Hopefully, you will be able to share my enthusiasm and love of gardens in a personalised introduction to this amazing site.

Your Dover tour itinerary

- From your chosen pick-up location in Dover or Canterbury, we will make our way to Rye pausing for photographs of idyllic villages and medieval churches along the way. The journey time is approximately 1 hour. - Whilst taking a stroll with me through the quaint streets and cobbled lanes of Rye, you will soak up the atmosphere of this medieval gem and catch stunning views over the surrounding marshes and coast of the English Channel. We generally spend between 60 and 90 minutes walking around Rye and looking at various sites. - From Rye, we will continue our journey to Sissinghurst Castle Garden, perhaps stopping off for some lunch in a typical country pub or English tearoom. The drive takes around 30-45 minutes. - After a visit to Sissinghurst, we continue the tour back to your drop-off location, taking in more of the enchanting English countryside and some outstanding villages. This drive will take us just over an hour. Please be aware that this tour can be customised according to your wishes.
