Leeds castle was quite charming. It was easy to navigate through the castle rooms and grounds. The dog collar museum on the castle grounds should not be missed! Canterbury Cathedral map and history was explained by our tour guide Sandra before entering the cathedral. It would have been helpful if a cathedral guide had met us inside to answer questions and point out historical and physical details of the cathedral. It is quite large and there is much to explore and view. Chis our bus driver was familiar with roads that brought us closer to viewing Dover Castle and the Cliffs.The boat ride on the Thames was sn unforgettable way to end our day. Lots of photo ops especially on the back of the boat.
our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the day was well planned. Unfortunately we were left in cantebury for a much longer time due to something that happened to the coach and we had to wait for the coach driver for quite a log time. However, we managed to get a later boat to take us along the river back to London.
I have always wanted to see Leeds Castle. It was every bit of beauty I imagined it would be. I can only imagine what it looks like in the spring when the flowers are in bloom and the sun shining. Compared to Windsor , I could actually imagine myself living in this castle. You can even rent out rooms for a wedding. If you are fascinated with castles, this is a must see. Canterbury Cathedral was under going some exterior renovations but you could still appreciate it's beauty...both inside and out. White Cliffs of Dover are situated just beyond a beach. Nothing like our beaches back home and of course in March the only ones on the beach area were the tourist, me included. The end of the tour was a cruise on the Thames River. It dropped us off right in the area of the London Eye and Big Ben. I was able to grab some more photos before I found my way back to the hotel. The only thing I wish the tours would do is drop us off at the hotel but because everyone is staying at different locations, it's impossible. I was familiar with the tube so getting back to my hotel was very easy for me on this tour. It's an all day tour but worth it. You get to see 4 different areas outside of London. If you are not comfortable driving a car on the other side of the road, this is the best way to get around to seeing things.
