    Dover Shore Excursion- This tour visits some of the top sites in Kent County including the stunning Canterbury Cathedral and then one of the counties best gardens at Goodnestone Park, making this a perfect day in the English Countryside.

    After meeting your guide you immediately depart for Canterbury, rich in history, heritage, stunning architecture and world famous buildings. Canterbury has the perfect blend of city, coast and countryside, ensuring a delightful day for everyone.

    Upon arrival in Canterbury, you visit its famous Cathedral. Pilgrims and visitors have made their way here since the Middle Ages and it is still one of the most visited places in England. People have always been welcomed, in the ancient tradition of Benedictine hospitality and this continues now. During your tour, you will experience the beauty and the unique atmosphere of one of the great holy places of Christendom.

    After visiting the cathedral you have some free time in Canterbury to have lunch (meal not included) and/or to do some shopping.

    This afternoon you visit the Walled Garden at Goodnestone Park. The gardens consist of three enclosures including; an old fashioned rose garden with hardy geraniums and perennials, the summer garden with borders for summer flowering and the kitchen garden where borders are a mixture of fruits and vegetables. The Woodland Garden has been developed over many years and the winding paths reveal an array of trees and shrubs, terraces, box hedges, gravel and planted enclosures with views over the village cricket grounds.

    At the end of the tour you return to the pier in Dover.
