Christmas at the Castle in Kent

Door to Door Service with lunch at Hever Castle

Christmas at the Castle in Kent

Set in magnificent grounds, moated and most probably haunted, the thirteenth centure charming Hever Castle was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.  Enjoy Christmas lunch at 'the most romantic castle in the world'.  Discover the splendid, panelled rooms containing fine furniture, tapestries, antiques and an important collection of Tudor portraits.  Spend a morning exploring historic Rochester, with its stunning Cathedral and magnificent Castle.  Bedgebury Pinetum takes on a transformation for the festive season for a magical experience filled with sparkling tunnels of light, dancing lakeside reflections and majestic trees drenched in dazzling colours with their larger-than-life illuminations. 
Spend a day in Canterbury, a city steeped in tradition with its skyline dominated by the oldest Cathedral in England.

Day 1

Your holiday starts when you are picked up from home by one of our Door-to-Door vehicles and brought through to meet our coach. Once everybody is on board, we make our way to Maidstone. We'll have a stop at Stamford for a couple of hours, aiming to arrive at the hotel in plenty of time to unpack before dinner.

Day 2

We make the short journey to Leeds Castle. Rising majestically out of the moat as it has done for over 900 years during which time the castle has been a Norman stronghold; the private property of six of England's medieval queens; a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon; a Jacobean country house; a Georgian mansion; an elegant early 20th century retreat for the influential and famous; and in the 21st century, it has become one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain. As well as the castle, there are 500 acres of parkland & formal gardens, the Gatehouse Exhibition and even a Dog Collar Museum to be visited so we spend the full day here before returning to the hotel late afternoon.

Day 3

Those that wish may join us on a visit to Canterbury where'll you'll have a couple of hours to explore this historic city with its skyline dominated by the oldest Cathedral in England. Alternatively, you may wish to relax and enjoy the facilities of the hotel. This evening, we invite you to wrap up warmly for an after dark illuminated winter woodland walk along a winding one mile path where the treetops glisten and shimmer as they are drenched in seasonal colour on this festive adventure as we head to the Bedgebury Christmas Light Trail. Our meal today will be either a lunch or late dinner.

Day 4

Leaving the hotel after breakfast, we begin our journey home stopping for a couple of hours in Cambridge. We'll leave early afternoon for the drop-off point where one of our Door to Door service vehicles will be waiting to take you home.
