You will start the day at the Victoria Coach Station in London, where you will picked up and taken to Canterbury.  The ancient city of Canterbury, immortalized by The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, was the final destination of one of the most famous medieval pilgrimages in Europe.  

The city has been the center for Christian worship for nearly 1,700 years, and while you’re in Canterbury, you’ll have a chance to attend the Christmas services in the cathedral (a cathedral that is infamous for being where Thomas Beckett was brutally murdered in 1170).

You’ll also get to eat a Christmas lunch in Cantebury, where you can enjoy a traditional roast turkey with all of the trimmings as well as Christmas pudding.

After Canterbury, make sure your phone or camera is charged because you’ll be able to take great pictures at the viewpoint to the White Cliffs of Dover.

Next up is a walking tour of Rochester, where you will see Rochester’s importance in Medieval times when you walk past the 11th Century Cathedral and the 12th Century Castle.  You’ll also get to see many locations from the works of Charles Dickens, which are marked with plaques.

Your day will then end back at the Victoria Station.  This is a great tour to book if you are spending the holiday season in London (other great tours would be the Chester Christmas Market Day Trip, Christmas Lunch Cruise and Christmas Lights Tour).

And if you book this tour by the end of November, you’ll be able to save 15% on the cost of the tour.
