First, visit Dover Castle overlooking the majestic white cliffs of Dover. View the Great Tower, recently re-opened, as it takes you back to the medieval court of King Henry II (1200's), who built the tower to showcase his power and wealth.

Then, for the highlight of your tour, experience Dover’s Secret Wartime Tunnels (recently opened) to experience life as it was lived by the 700 personnel based here during World War II.

See the Command Centre where Sir Winston Churchill viewed the Battle of Britain, relive the drama as a surgeon struggles to save the life of a pilot in the underground hospital, and see the room where the evacuation of Dunkirk was planned.

Next, travel to the ancient city of Canterbury. Enjoy a fish and chip lunch (included) before a guided walking tour. Thomas Becket's murder at Canterbury Cathedral in 1170 led to the cathedral becoming a place of pilgrimage for Christians worldwide. This pilgrimage provided the theme for Geoffrey Chaucer's 14th-century literary classic the Canterbury Tales. There is time to enter the Cathedral.

Then, head for Greenwich best known for its maritime history for a guided walking tour before joining a Thames River Cruise for Afternoon Tea. Sail past historic sights such as the Tower of London before arriving back at Westminster Pier where the tour ends.
