If you are staying in London, why not plan to take a leisurely day out and visit some of the beautiful countryside and places that Kent has to offer.
Instead of sitting in heavy traffic whilst driving in and out of London, why not experience the thrill of a comfortable High Speed train ride from St Pancras International? In less than 1 hour, you could find yourself enjoying a walk on the magnificent White Cliffs of Dover or through the medieval towns of Canterbury, Sandwich or Rye. Joining our tour in this way, you will maximise your valuable time in the places you really want to be.
On arrival at St Pancras station, you can purchase a day return train ticket to Ashford, Folkestone or Canterbury. We will meet you at your chosen destination and take you on one of our fascinating excursions.
We look forward to meeting you on one of our tours very soon.
Full Day Tours (up to 9 hours)

A World War 1-themed walking tour of Folkestone followed by a visit to the Battle of Britain Memorial in Capel-Le-Ferne and a guided visit to Dover Castle with its underground wartime tunnels that were used as a military hospital.
Glorious Castles of Kent
A winning combination of Leeds Castle near Maidstone and Dover Castle overlooking the English Channel. These two fascinating castles could not be more different from each other are set in equally stunning locations.

Half Day Tours (up to 5 hours)
Gateway to England
WW1 themed walking tour of Folkestone including the Leas promenade, the recently opened Memorial Arch and the Harbour Arm from where soldiers left for the Western Front. After a stop at the poignant Battle of Britain Memorial in Capel-le-Ferne, we continue beyond Dover to St Margaret’s Bay, where Noel Coward and Ian Fleming both lived. This is the closest point to France, from where you may enjoy magnificent views of the famous White Cliffs, the English Channel and, on a clear day, the French coastline. To round the day off, we will take you for a traditional 'cream tea' in a typical English tearoom.
Sandwich, Deal and Walmer Castle
Drive to Sandwich, which is one of the most complete medieval towns in Britain and its street plan has little changed since the 14th century. After a short stop in Sandwich drive to Walmer Castle through Deal, a “limb port” of the Cinque Ports. Visit Walmer Castle, which is the official residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports. The Duke of Wellington, one of the most illustrious Wardens, left behind a collection of memorabilia and actually died here. The Castle historical gardens are outstanding.
The White Cliffs Experience and Visit to Dover Castle
Admire the views across the English Channel from the famous chalk cliffs of Dover before visiting what is the largest and finest example of a Norman Castle in Britain, and is often described as 'The Key to England'. Inside the Great Tower you can immerse yourself in a medieval palace like no other. Discover centuries of history from the Romans to the Cold War and delve deep within the cliffs to visit the Secret Wartime Tunnels which housed a military hospital in WW2.
