Faversham   |   Canterbury   |   New Romney   |   Lydd   |   Chatham Historic Naval Dockyard   |   Rochester

 

Kent is a county of many contrasts from historic Canterbury with its famous cathedral to the historic naval dockyard to the marshlands of the south, join us this Spring whilst we explore this truly enchanting part of the country.

 

DAY ONE

We depart for your holiday from your front door with our exclusive door to door pick-up, join your tour coach and travel south to Kent with comfort stops enroute. Arrive at our hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Our day begins with an excursion to delightful Faversham, nestling between the rural gently sloping Downs and the austere North Kent Marshes. Faversham is one of England’s most charming towns with over 475 listed buildings and a good selection of independent shops. We have time to explore the town and have lunch. From here we continue to historic Canterbury, the city is dominated by the magnificent Cathedral, now a World Heritage Site. There is a maze of intriguing side streets with a rich variety of specialist shops and welcoming cafes and pubs in which to relax.

 

DAY THREE

This morning we head for southern Kent and the land of mysterious marshes and smugglers, fist we arrive at New Romney. A Cinque Port since 1155, the Great Storm of 1287 changed the course of the River Rother and made New Romney an inland town. Next we arrive at Lydd and in the 18 & 19th centuries the town was notorious for the activities of ‘owlers’ (local smugglers hooting to each other at the dead of night). Take a look at All Saints Church, the Cathedral of the Marsh which has a soaring 132ft tower and at 199ft is Kent’s longest church and part of it date back to Roman times. As we head inland spot the tower of St Mildred’s church at Tenterden, known as the ‘Jewel in the Weald’ the town makes an ideal place to finish our day.

 

DAY FOUR

Today's excursion takes us first to Chatham and the famous Historic Naval Dockyard, this vast maritime heritage site offers the visitor much to see, with an abundance of historic buildings dating from 1704, three warships, dry docks, royal Dockyard Museum and much more. This afternoon we visit the city of Rochester and with magnificent Cathedral and historic castle, take a stroll along the high street and explore the town and cobbled streets.
