A journey through the Garden of England

The area of England this tour journeys through is called Kent and its known to be very fertile and famous for growing fruit and hops - these are the main ingredients for beer and cider! We visit Canterbury and learn about the Martyr Thomas Beckett who was slain by the King of England a long time ago in the mighty Cathedral. Then we venture to a beautiful castle which was used several times by Kings Henry VIII. After exploring Leeds Castle we then drop down to the coast for a photo stop at the White Cliffs of Dover to complete this great day out.
