Day 1 Morning departure for a visit to Rye, a medieval haven where many authors, musicians, artists and celebrities have made their home. Then continue the journey to Hythe and the hotel for a four night stay.

Day 2 Today travel to Canterbury with its iconic cathedral, maybe visit the Canterbury Tales exhibition or one of the other attractions this city has to offer. You could also take a ride on a little boat, where you will discover the hidden secrets of the River Stour as you pass a variety of historic buildings and monuments. You will also have time today to visit the Battle of Britain memorial, a unique place of pilgrimage that sits on the top of the cliffs of Dover.

Day 3 A day trip to France, sailing from Dover. Enjoy a scenic drive through the French countryside arriving at the Chateau Tilques for an early afternoon tea before visiting Le Blockhaus d’Eperlecques, a memorial place in the heart of the Eperlecques forest and where the Germans built an assembly plant for V2 rockets. (NB Passports are required).

Day 4 Todays visit is to the romantic Sissinghurst Castle Gardens. An Elizabethan manor house in the Weald of Kent with gardens created to embrace every season. You will make a stop on route at Tenterden, another one of the Cinque Ports, now landlocked due to the river silting up and no longer navigable.

Day 5 Breakfast, then commence the homeward journey.
