Continue to Leeds Castle, famous for the shimmering lake that surrounds it. Arrive early so you can get in early. Leeds Castle has inspired many artists with its perfect medieval castle image of 500 acres of parks and gardens. Explore the superb collection of medieval furniture, tapestries and impressionist art, the rare bird aviary, vineyard and of course the delightful maze.
Traveling through Kent, the county known as "the Garden of England", you arrive in Canterbury, the cradle of English Christianity. The cathedral, built in the 11th century, is linked to many personalities, the most famous being Saint Thomas Becket, who was horribly murdered in 1170. The architecture of Canterbury Cathedral exhibits a Gothic style, is a lasting testimony to its siege as the cradle of English Christianity, and a monument to the enduring power of its early Christian missionaries.
Continue the tour through the picturesque Kentish landscape dotted with quirky buildings and quaint little villages to Dover, where one can see the famous White Cliffs standing 400 feet above sea level. You will see above the White Cliffs the vast Dover Castle which watches over the city and dates back 800 years.
