Ideas and inspiration for tours within Kent and further afield

Itineraries are created to the clients’ specific interests, the regions that they would like to visit, their preferred dates and accommodation budget. My speciality is tours within Kent and the South East of England however I am delighted to offer tours to other lovely areas of the UK

A full day tour (approx. 7hrs) includes a relaxed drive through the lovely Kent countryside with plenty of photo opportunities. Passing through old towns and picturesque villages you will see historic houses, country churches and gorgeous gardens along the route. A stop for lunch in an old country pub or a cup of tea and a slice of cake in a quintessentially English tearoom, will only add to this very enjoyable and individual experience.  A full day tour also allows the time to visit attractions/places of interest of your choice.
