The Key to England and the Queens castle
Dover Castle is one of the most massive forts in England and has proved to be a worthy defence structure for the country. Explore the once top-secret World War II tunnels; it was here that "Operation Overlord" was masterminded for the allied invasion of Normandy. Relive the drama of these events, then climb to the battlements where you can see views of France.
Your driver-guide will take you on a mini tour of the Kent countryside, known as the garden of England, on account of the vast amount of apple and cherry orchards. Vineyards are now becoming the dominate sight. English sparkling wine is gaining respect and popularity globally. Take the opportunity to Taste English Sparkling Wine.
Leeds Castle is known as the loveliest castle in the world, for centuries the idyllic Leeds Castle was a royal gift, passed from a King to his Queen. Its owners have spanned from six medieval queens to an American heiress. The castle itself has evolved from Norman stronghold to the ultimate 20th-century party house, hosting Hollywood movie stars, European Royalty, and famous politicians such as Sir Winston Churchill.
