Family London Tours From London Main Canterbury & Dover Tour

This tour operates April to October, Monday to Friday, subject to attraction schedules and guide availability.

Your personal driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at 8am. After a fast-route from London, our Private Canterbury-Dover Tour takes us into the county of Kent. Here, in the garden of England, we visit the both the religious heart and the military key to the country.

Dover is England’s right foot and has been the country’s front line since time immemorial. Julius Caesar was thwarted here and it became the main fortification in the Saxon shore defences. We will, of course, visit the famed White Cliffs of Dover made legendary in song.

Dover Castle
Your personal guide will give you a tour of the original castle built by the Normans. King Henry II had it rebuilt as a ‘hospitality suite’ for foreign dignitaries visiting Thomas Beckett’s shrine. In later centuries, it was used as a defence against Napoleon and Hitler with a warren of tunnels underneath.

Your guide will suggest appropriate lunch options on the day. Perhaps a village tea-room, riverside restaurant or traditional pub. Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch or just grab a sandwich. It’s your tour, it’s your choice. (Note: Canterbury-Dover Private Tour price does not include food or refreshments).

The Canterbury Tales
In the late 14th century, Geoffrey Chaucer wrote the story of a group of pilgrims who set out from London to visit the shrine of Thomas Beckett. What follows is a rip-roaring and frankly rude collection of tales which we will discuss this classic as we walk through this ancient town.

Canterbury Cathedral & Thomas Beckett
Almost 850 years ago, the Christian world was rocked by a shocking assassination. On the King’s authority, the Archbishop was murdered in Canterbury Cathedral. Your personal guide will give you a tour of this awe-inspiring medieval masterpiece and visit the site of Beckett’s murder.
