'Captivating' Kent

'Captivating' Kent





5 DAYS FROM £394


The county of Kent is renowned for its rural beauty, rich heritage, spectacular coastline and boasts more castles and gardens than any other county in the UK. Its gentle hills, fertile farmland and cultivated country estates with fruit filled orchards have given rise to the term ‘The Garden of England’. The city of Canterbury offers a blend of historic charm with its ancient buildings and majestic cathedral to the modern vitality of its bustling shops and cafes.


Popular with our clients in 2018, our base in Canterbury is once again the very comfortable BEST WESTERN ABBOTTS BARTON HOTEL which is located in its own 2 acre grounds just a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Features of the hotel include a restaurant serving modern seasonal fayre and a bar where drinks and snacks are available throughout the day. All of the well decorated en suite bedrooms have tv, telephone, hairdryer, iron/ironing board and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.


Monday 14th October
Departing Newark early morning, we principally utilise the A1 and motorway system to travel southwards, making an extended break at Chatham Historic Dockyard - one of Britain’s leading maritime heritage destinations and the world’s most complete dockyard from the ‘age of sail’. A guided tour aboard our coach uncovers 400 years of maritime history through architecture, ships and people. We then continue our journey to our base in Canterbury.

Tuesday 15th – Thursday 17th October
Scheduled excursions during the stay will include the following:
• Full day tour of the North Kent Coast calling at the charming resort of Whitstable (famous for its oysters) and the cosmopolitan resort of Ramsgate with its pavement cafes, waterfront bars and Royal Marina.
• Full day at leisure in Canterbury.
• Full day tour including free time in the lovely Georgian town of Tenterden the ‘Jewel of the Weald’, with its tree lined greens and wide range of independent shops selling gifts, crafts, books and antiques. Our afternoon continues with a ride aboard the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Light Railway - “Kent’s Mainline in Miniature”, which operates one-third full size steam & diesel locomotives along 13½ miles of track from Dungeness to the Cinque Port town of Hythe.

Friday 18th October
Departing our hotel after a leisurely breakfast we return via an extended break in the historic town of Saffron Walden before continuing so home to Newark for approximately teatime.
