Once the home of six of England’s medieval queens, including Philippa of Hainhault (wife of Edward III), Joan of Navarre, Catherine de Valois and Catherine of Aragon, Leeds Castle is sometimes referred to as 'the Castle of Queens and the Queen of Castles'. Explore the beautiful state rooms and stroll around the 500-acre estate, which includes parkland and large lakes.

Next on your stop is the White Cliffs of Dover. One of England’s most iconic landmarks, the white cliffs were used as a defence in war time. Take a stroll and enjoy the stunning views over the English Channel and see how much cliff top wildlife you can spot, including birds and butterflies.
