From Central London, head southwest to Canterbury. Primeval walls, built by the Romans, surround the medieval city center. Walk on the cobbled streets and get transported back in time, while you admire the views. Remember to visit the unique Canterbury Cathedral, founded 597 A.D.

After Canterbury, set out for Dover, a significant port for ferries to Calais, in France.
Climb the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, and if you are lucky enough and the sky is clear, you can see the shore of France. Visit the Dover Castle and the Secret Wartime Tunnels.

Finish your day trip exploring Leeds Castle, named “the loveliest castle in the world”. It is built on two islands on a lake and has been open to the public since 1976. Get lost solving the maze and once you reached the center, return to the civilization through the underground Grotto.

Whether you decide to go from London to Dover by train, coach or car, plan your visit in advance. In this way, you can make the most of it!
