Tour Overview
This day trip from London includes a private tour inside Leeds Castle, prior to the castle opening up to the public, a drive along the famous white cliffs of Dover and a visit to its castle, entrance into the UNESCO Canterbury Cathedral and ends with a river cruise from Greenwich to Embankment.

We will start this day trip in the morning, heading to Leeds Castle, the former royal residence of 6 of England's medieval queens. The palace was transformed by Henry VIII, and became a retreat for the rich and powerful. After being greeted by your local and experienced guide, you'll explore the galleries, chapel, courtyards and banqueting hall, discovering the history of this magical castle. Also enjoy an exclusive sampling of mead, exactly as Henry VIII would have!

We will then head to the ancient city of Canterbury where you will get to explore the UNESCO Heritage Site of the Canterbury Cathedral. Marvel at the medieval architecture and stained glass windows, many of which have survived from the late 12th century. The towering cathedral is the oldest in all of England and considered to be the center of English Christianity. This gothic masterpiece is most famously known as the site of the brutal murder of Thomas Becket in 1170, and is rich with incredible history.

The White Cliffs of Dover have held strong through the invasions of two world wars. Their breathtaking views and coastlines stand as the gateway to England, and are a can't-miss photo op. On clear days you can see all the way to France! The medieval fortress Dover Castle will also be seen along our scenic coastal drive, commanding itself over the English Channel.

Heading to yet another World Heritage Site overlooking the River Thames, Greenwich is bustling with maritime history, landmarks and artifacts. See the Cutty Sark, famous for being the fastest sailing ship of the 19th century. Visit the Old Royal Naval College before embarking on a cruise back to London. The River Thames cruise sails to Embankment, passing the iconic Tower Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, and the House of Parliament for the perfect ending to you day tour with Gray Line.
