Leeds Castle, Canterbury and the Garden of England
Telephone Booking Reference BAC AT PP

We follow the old Pilgrims Way to the ancient walled city of Canterbury, a place of pilgrimmage for many centuries. Visit the magnificent cathedral, the scene of the bloody murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170 and the home of English christianity. There's also time to explore the labyrinth of medieval streets, quaint shops and historic taverns.

Afterwards we take the grassy lanes through the orchards, hop fields and oast houses of the Garden of England.Visit Chilham, the prettiest village in Kent, and Pluckley, the most haunted village in England and the setting of the popular comedy "The Darling Buds of May"

And finally to Leeds Castle, beautifully positioned on two small islands in the middle of a lake. Over 1000 years old, this spectacular castle has been a royal residence for six of England's medieval queens and a palace oh Henry VIII. The castle is richly furnished and is set in beautifully landscaped gardens. We spend over 2 hours here to allow plenty of time to explore the castle and the grounds - including the Culpepper country flower and herb garden, maze and underground grotto and Aviary with its collection of more than 100 rare species of birds.
