KENT VILLAGES

Our all day Kent villages tour starts with a pick up in the morning from your central London accommodation. We travel through Kent and pass some beautiful villages and countryside along the way.

Below are just some suggestions for places to take in your tour. However, as there is a vast amount of history and sights in Kent, prior to departure, I will liaise with you to discuss your specific requirements for this tour.

Leeds Castle was built in the 12th century as a Norman stronghold. In 1278 it became the favoured property of King Edward I. The castle was taken over by Edward II in 1321. After Edward II died in 1327, his widow took over the castle as her main residence. A beautiful building, steeped in history.
