Itinerary

Description

From our base in the picturesque town of Folkestone on the south coast of Kent, we venture across the Channel to historic Dunkirk, one of the most famous port towns in France. We combine this with a visit to the beautiful cathedral city of Canterbury, and also have the option to explore 1066 Country to complete our captivating short break.

Coach Itinerary

IncludedExcursions
Canterbury (half day)
Our first excursion sees us spend half a day in the beautiful city of Canterbury, with its quaint cobbled lanes, timber-framed buildings and medieval city walls. It is also the home to the oldest cathedral in England, dating back to Norman times.

Dunkirk (full day)
For our second included excursion, we head across the Channel to the French coastal town of Dunkirk where we enjoy free time at leisure. The third largest port in France, Dunkirk has a rich maritime heritage and is also famous for the evacuation of Allied troops during the Second World War. The town has a long seafront and a fine sandy beach, nicknamed the ‘queen of the northern beaches’.

Optional Excursion
Hastings & Rye – £10pp (full day)
We explore 1066 Country on our optional excursion, calling first at the coastal town of Hastings, which boasts the remains of the first castle in England to be built by William the Conqueror, a lovely preserved Old Town with half-timbered houses and narrow streets and a three-mile seafront. We then head to the fortified hilltop town of Rye, a charming place of historic buildings, cobbled lanes and secret passages, once the haunt of smugglers and highwaymen.
