ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury, Kent, EnglandThe ancient city of Canterbury has been the centre 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. Canterbury became the centre of one of the most important medieval pilgrimages in Europe, immortalised by Geoffrey Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales. Whilst at Canterbury you will have a chance to enjoy the Christmas services in the cathedral (subject to cathedral service timings). Duration: 1 hour 30 minutesPass By: The White Cliffs of Dover, Dover, Kent, EnglandThe White Cliffs of Dover are perhaps most famous as an iconic landmark, the white chalk face a symbol of home and war time defence, but they have so much more to offer; stunning views, a serene walk, a wealth of wildlife, an abundance of history.Pass By: Rochester Cathedral, Rochester, Kent, EnglandThe former City of Rochester, with its unique atmosphere and wealth of historic buildings, provides us with an opportunity to step into the life & 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 our walking tour, taking us past both the 11th Century Cathedral and the 12th Century Castle, symbols of the town’s earlier importance in Medieval times.
