Coach Itinerary

Day 1

After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in.

Day 2 – Sandwich & Margate

This morning we head to the historic town of Sandwich. Once a major port, there are still many
original medieval buildings dotted around this enchanting town, making it a delight to explore.

 

We then head to the charming coastal town of Margate with its unspoilt sandy bays, retro shops and friendly atmosphere. As Margate is also home to a thriving arts community, you may like to browse the Turner Contemporary, a beautiful gallery overlooking the sea. Later we enjoy a traditional ‘Christmas’ dinner with all the trimmings back at the hotel.

 

Day 3 – Herne Bay & Canterbury

Today we visit the seaside town of Herne Bay; a stroll along the traditional pier and The Seaside Museum itself awaits! We then continue on to the spellbinding city of Canterbury, home to the oldest cathedral in England, dating back to Norman times. There is plenty to explore within the city’s medieval walls, from quaint cobbled lanes and timber-framed buildings to a bustling shopping centre.


Day 4 - Rochester & Chatham

We head first to Rochester. Boasting ancient buildings including an imposing castle and enthralling cathedral, the town was also a favourite of Charles Dickens who based many of his novels in the area. We then continue to Chatham, its Historic Dockyard has a rich maritime history stretching back more than 400 years. Highlights include the award-winning Command of the Oceans interactive gallery and the HMS Cavalier.

 

Day 5

After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
