A chance to enjoy a short break in beautiful Kent which will include stunning scenery along the Kent Coast, its magnificent Marshes and to round the tour off a visit to the famous Dover Castle.

 

DAY ONE

We depart for your long weekend break with our exclusive home pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel south to Kent with comfort stops enroute, late afternoon arrival at your hotel, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

This morning we head for southern Kent and the land of mysterious marshes and smugglers.  First we come to 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, in the 18th & 19th centuries the town was notorious for the activities of ‘owlers’ – local smugglers hooting to each other at the dead of night – have 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, parts of it date back to Roman times.

 

As we head inland spot the tower of St Mildred’s Church at Tenterden - Lord Nelson’s daughter by his mistress Emma Hamilton who was at one time the vicar’s wife – was known as the ‘Jewel in the Weald’ the town makes an ideal place to finish the day.

 

DAY THREE

Today we make for the Kent Coast and the genteel resort of Deal, we take a break here with chance for you to explore and obtain lunch.  From here we travel to Dover and visit the most iconic of all English fortresses, Dover Castle.  The castle has commanded the gateway to the realm for 9 centuries, explore the many layers of the castle’s colourful and turbulent history and return late afternoon back to the hotel.
