(HALF DAY): Sissinghurst Castle, is among the most famous gardens in England, on our excursion here you can admire the world-renowned gardens set in a 460-acre estate of scenic countryside. The poet and writer Vita Sackville-West and her diplomat husband Harold Nicholson fell in love with Sissinghurst Castle and began transforming it in the 1930's. They created the unusual gardens, which are designed as a series of themed "rooms." Explore the diversity of the gardens and venture through the open areas of the castle.

CATHEDRAL GUIDED TOUR (FULL DAY): Made famous by Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, this university city boasts some of England's finest Medieval architecture, including one of its oldest and most magnificent Cathedrals, where we have included a guided tour.

It remains one of the most visited places in the country.
