Day 3 – Optional excursion to Sandwich – £11pp (half day)
The charming town of Sandwich lies on the pretty River Stour in Kent and was once one of the Cinque Ports. With a preserved centre dotted with original buildings such as several listed public houses, the town provides a unique taste of medieval England. Stroll through the narrow winding streets or enjoy the walk along the old town walls, one of the most complete defensive circuits of any English medieval town.

We head to enchanting and historic Rochester. Boasting ancient buildings including an imposing castle and magnificent cathedral, the town was also a favourite of Charles Dickens who based many of his novels in the area.
After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
At the heart of the Garden Coast, lovely Folkestone has much to offer, with towering white cliffs to the East and broad sandy beaches to the West.
It's lovely harbour and wonderful sandy beaches make this a popular seaside resort, becoming one of the Cinque Ports in the 13th century.
