Itinerary

Description

The beautiful town of Folkestone provides us with the perfect base to discover the highlights of charming Kent and East Sussex on this five-day getaway, which includes an excursion to Canterbury, one of the most important cathedral cities in England and visits to the coastal towns of Margate and Whitstable. There’s also the opportunity to visit 1066 country with an optional excursion to Hastings & Rye to complete this lovely break in England’s beautiful South East.

Coach Itinerary

Included Excursions

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.

Margate & Whitstable (half day)
For our second included excursion we travel to the charming seaside towns of Margate and Whitstable. Margate is home to unspoilt sandy bays, retro shops and a thriving arts community while Whitstable boasts a small working harbour flanked by shingle beaches, pastel-coloured beach huts, weatherboard houses plus independent shops and galleries.


Optional Excursion

Hastings & Rye – £12pp (half day)

We explore 1066 Country on our optional excursion, calling first at Hastings. This coastal town 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, 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.
