Call the Midwife - Walking tour & Historic Dockyard Chatham
Today we head to Chatham Historic Dockyard where we enjoy the official Call the Midwife Tour, which has been devised with the creators of Call the Midwife. Now in its seventh year, Call the Midwife regularly captures the hearts of over 10 million TV viewers, however, few viewers know that The Historic Dockyard Chatham has been the backdrop for many of the show's most iconic scenes. This exciting tour, overseen by the show's producers, will feature material from the latest series, as well as props, costumes, set and of course a costumed Midwife to lead our tour! After you have free time to explore the dockyard at leisure.
Private guided visit of Leeds Castle & Gardens
Today, we make the very short journey to Leeds Castle & Gardens. This elegant 12th century castle rises majestically from the waters of its moat and is surrounded by 500 acres of interesting parkland and gardens. We have a guided tour of the castle and gardens followed by free time for you to go back and explore at your leisure.
We spend free time today in the university city of Canterbury, dominated by its stunning cathedral, the oldest in England. You'll have time to explore the cathedral, the city's museums and the quaint, cobbled streets full of restaurants and tearooms.
After breakfast, we depart the hotel and return to the local area.
