Relax as we journey south, arriving at our hotel during the afternoon for our 4-night stay.


Our day begins with a ride to delightful Faversham, nestling between the rural gently sloping Downs and the austere North Kent marshes. Faversham is one of England’s most charming towns with over 475 listed buildings and a good selection of independent shops. We have time to explore the town and have lunch. From here we continue to historic Canterbury. The City is dominated by the magnificent Cathedral, now a World Heritage Site, and the city centre, being very compact, is best explored on foot or by horse drawn carriage. There is a maze of intriguing side streets with a rich variety of specialist shops and welcoming cafes and pubs in which to relax.


This morning we head for southern Kent and the land of mysterious marshes and smugglers. First we come to New Romney. A Cinque Port since 1155, the Great Storm of 1287 changed the course of the River Rother and made New Romney an inland town. Next we arrive at Lydd. In the 18th and 19th centuries the town was notorious for the activities of ‘owlers’ (Local smugglers hooting to each other at dead of night). Have a look at All Saints Church – The Cathedral of the Marsh, which has a soaring 132ft tower, and at 199ft is Kent’s longest church, parts of it date back to Roman times. As we head inland spot the tower of St Mildred’s Church at Tenterden. Horatio, Lord Nelson’s daughter by his mistress Emma Hamilton, was at one time the vicar’s wife. Known as the ‘Jewel in the Weald’ the town makes an ideal place to finish the day.


Today’s excursion takes us first to Chatham and the famous Historic Naval Dockyard. This vast maritime heritage site offers the visitor much to see, with an abundance of historic buildings dating from 1704, three warships, dry docks, Royal Dockyard Museum and much more. This afternoon we visit the City of Rochester with its magnificent Cathedral and historic castle. Take a stroll along High Street and explore the old town and cobbled streets.


After breakfast we leave and head for home.
