    Not enough time at Canterbury Cathedral. Thought it was guided tour but it was not so no reason to not give us the tickets so we could spend as much time as we wanted inside the cathedral

What people are saying about Kent

Small group of 19 so cramped in a small bus. Lil box lunch was a small sandwich water chips and a granola cookie. Leeds castle was ok nothing extravagant. Canterbury Cathedral ok. I say skip the church and walk around the town do some shopping i guess. Dover was a quick 10 mins. Take your pictures and on to the next stop. The thame river cruise is cool you can stop wherever you want along the river and do some exploring. Is it worth it yea beats staying inside the city.

Very beautiful castle and countryside. Must visit. The only comment is that they were not allowed to take tea on the bus. The guide explained that this is the company’s policy for hot drinks. Although the bus was not in motion and it was possible to drink tea and eat the proposed lunch. I had to drink cold water, although after a walk we froze a little. It was uncomfortable
