Pre/post cruise Private tour from Dover – Canterbury – Rochester – London

We head to Canterbury, a first-class World Cultural Heritage city home to three Unesco World Heritage Sites: Canterbury Cathedral with its stunning mixture of Romanesque and Perpendicular Gothic architecture and its collections of early medieval stained glass.<br><br>Canterbury was one of medieval Europe’s great places of pilgrimage and knowledge. The city center still retains much of the atmosphere experienced by the medieval pilgrims and celebrated in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.<br>Rochester, the second-oldest diocese in England, is at an ancient crossing on the River Medway, fortified by a sturdy Medieval castle.<br><br>Rochester cathedral blends Romanesque and Gothic architecture, with a west front that dates back almost 900 years. Rochester High Street with its quaint, cantilevered Tudor houses andweatherboard cottages to rows of bold 17th and 18th-century townhouses with white-painted quoins is achingly pretty. The variety of shops, cafes are worth a visit<br><br>Finally, we will drive you to London.

Was privileged to be shown around by the current owner who has spent considerable time clearing and refurbishing the site. Many things stick in my mind but the most memorable was the stairs down to and up again into the gun emplacements that look out over the river.

The visit centre is very inadequate no refresh, and no seating outside, because of the geography of the centre you are exposed to the weather, worst in the winter, with no shelter, Staff are friendly enough, How ever they could let us in early, but choose not to, Avoid if you can,

Six of us had a great evening spent at the Fort Borstal arranged by the excellent Ghost Hunt Events Team. Lots of weird happenings throughout the night and a very professional and non scary team of mediums led our group. The Fort itself was quite interesting and made us thankful to those that had fought here in the wars defending us. Great experience.
