Kent's Subtle Charm & Hidden Secrets


Become wowed by the everlasting history of Kent and its surrounding areas,

 visit Dover Castle and behold the mighty beauty that stands before you.


Head below ground to the Wartime Tunnels that venture far underground,

 showing off Dover’s Underground Hospital,

 of which a tour will guide us giving a real feel for the time

 and allowing the history to really sink in.


Stop off at the Battle of Britain Memorial,

 with the knowledge from  the Wartime Tunnels still fresh in your mind

 so you can properly appreciate this memorial.



Ales and rails are on the agenda for the next part of our trip

 as we take a guided tour around the Old Brewery, sampling classy fine ales.


Enjoy a gorgeous steam train journey to Bodiam

 with the Kent and East Sussex Railway

 and there’s a ploughman’s lunch on board allowing you to really savour the moment.



Explore the tranquil town of Tenterden

 before heading back to the hotel.

 Travel to Canterbury for some free time

 and have a look around the irresistible Canterbury’s Cathedral.


Please note:

The upper floor of the Great Tower in the Dover Castle

 has steep flights of narrow steps

and there are some very steep slopes and cobbled walkways within the grounds
