Take a day trip on an air-conditioned coach to England's south-eastern coast to see two of its most popular attractions.

Starting off in central London, your day will begin with a drive through the scenic Kent countryside to the ancient town of Canterbury, where you'll be able to enter the cathedral and see the spot where the Archbishop Thomas Becket was brutally murdered by Henry II's knights in 1170.

You'll have a couple of hours to explore the cathedral and its surrounding streets with their pretty timber-beamed shops and houses, before jumping back on the coach for your journey to Dover.

After stopping for a walk along the top of the White Cliffs, or viewing the dramatic cliffs from the beach (which one you can do will depend on the weather), you'll be given another couple of hours to enter the medieval castle and explore the court of Henry II, the old World War II tunnels and underground hospital.
