Kent - A great tour is brewing!

Our new packaged tour of Kent includes a visit to the “loveliest
castle in the world” and a visit to Canterbury, plus guided tours of
the Chatham Historic Dockyard and the Shepherd Neame
Brewery – cheers!
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Leeds Castle & Gardens
Today, we make the very short journey to Leeds Castle & Gardens. This
elegant 12th century castle rises majestically from the waters of its moat and is
surrounded by 500 acres of interesting parkland and gardens. Attractions include
falconry displays, a maze and grotto, the Dog Collar Museum, Elsie the land train
and the Black Swan Ferry (seasonal) (small charges apply for the train/ferry).

Day 3 Canterbury & Shepherd Neame Brewery
We spend free time this morning in the university city of Canterbury, dominated
by its stunning cathedral, the oldest in England. We have time to explore the
cathedral and the quaint, cobbled streets full of cafés and tearooms before
heading to Faversham for a guided tour of the Shepherd Neame Brewery,
Britain’s oldest brewer.

Day 4 Chatham Historic Dockyard
Today we head to Chatham Historic Dockyard where we enjoy a walking
tour through 400 years of maritime history. During this time the dockyard made
ships for the Royal Navy, including the nation’s most loved, HMS Victory. There is
plenty to see here, including award winning galleries, three historic warships, the
Victorian Ropery and the RNLI historic lifeboat collection.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
