Day 1
We make our way to Kent with a lunch stop in Cambridge.

Day 2
We begin the day with a guided tour of the Historic Dockyard Chatham.  With a history that spans from the Spanish Armada to the Falklands Crisis and more recently as a set for ‘Call the Midwife’, this is a fascinating visit.  In the afternoon we call into Rochester, famous for its links to Charles Dickens.

Day 3
Today we visit Canterbury with time at leisure to explore the historic architecture and winding lanes and streets of the city, including entry to the Canterbury Tales.  In the afternoon we visit the award winning Chapel Down Winery for a guided tour and a tasting of the produce.  The perfect way to round off the visit.

Day 4
Our first visit today is to Down House, Charles Darwin’s former home; see the study where he wrote ‘On the Origin of Species’ and stroll through the gardens that inspired the great man.  We then visit Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.  The splendid rooms and award winning gardens boast over 700 years of history.

Day 5
After breakfast we make our way homewards making a lunch stop in St. Ives.
