Description

Join us to discover some of England's fascinating history on this unique Christmas day tour. After your morning pick-up, we begin this festive tour with a visit to Canterbury. The ancient city of Canterbury has been at the center of Christian worship for almost 1,700 years. Its greatest treasure is the cathedral, infamous as the setting for the brutal murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170. When Henry II asked, 'Who will rid me of this turbulent priest?,' four of his knights rode to the cathedral and sliced Beckett's head off. Since then, Canterbury became the center of one of the most important medieval pilgrimages in Europe, immortalized by Geoffrey Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales. While in Canterbury you will have a chance to enjoy the Christmas services in the cathedral (subject to cathedral service timings). Tuck into a delicious Christmas lunch, which includes traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings, followed by delicious Christmas pudding. Then head to Dover where you'll stop for the fabulous views of the White Cliffs. The former City of Rochester, with its unique atmosphere and wealth of historic buildings, provides the opportunity to step into the life and times of Charles Dickens. You’ll see many locations marked with plaques, as mentioned in the novels. Victorian-style street lights line the cobbled streets of the walking tour, taking you past both the 11th-century Cathedral and the 12th-century Castle; symbols of the town’s earlier importance.
