Historic Rochester-Chatham-Canterbury Tour

Tour of Canterbury




The historic town of Canterbury lies deep within the Kent countryside (often referred to as the ‘Garden of England’) and has origins dating back to as early as the 1st century AD.







From the first Roman settlement here to the present day, our qualified Canterbury guides will escort you, as you take a friendly, professional and very well informed walking tour of all of the points of interest. Why not take time-out in one of a good selection of tea shops and cafes that are dotted around town.







Canterbury Cathedral, the King’s School, St Augustine’s Chapel, and the Roman City Wall are just a few of the amazing sights on offer in this fantastic tour

Why not add a small detour en-route to Canterbury which takes you through beautiful countryside and passes through the historic Roman town of Rochester.

Tour of Rochester

Rochester was for many years the favourite of Charles Dickens, who lived nearby at Gads Hill Place, Higham, and who based many of his novels in the area. Descriptions of the town appear in Pickwick Papers, Great Expectations and lightly fictionalised as Cloisterham in The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Restoration House located on Crow Lane was the house on which Charles Dickens based Miss Havisham’s house (Satis House from Great Expectations). This link is celebrated in Rochester’s Dickens Festival each June in the Summer Dickens Festival and December with the Dickensian Christmas Festival.





Then on to Chatham, site of the historic Chatham Dockyard where HMS Victory was built, the Commisssioner’s House ( it was built for Captain George St Lo, and is the oldest surviving naval building in England) and also the place where the world famous author Charles Dickens once lived. If you want to take a stroll with a local qualified guide in these places, we can arrange everything for you, so its all possible with this fantastic tour.





As always, both outward and return journeys are in the comfort of an iconic London Black Taxi, driven by a world renowned licensed London Cabbie.
