Folkestone & Kent

A NEW holiday for summer featuring the county of Kent with its beautiful countryside coastal towns and of course historic Canterbury with a ride on the famous Romney Hythe and Dymchurch railway across the Romney Marsh.

Holiday Highlights

 

• Hotel on Folkestone’s Famous Leas

• Broadstairs, Deal and Canterbury

• Romney Marshes and Rye

Monday

We depart and make our way to Kent
and our hotel for the next 4 nights with dinner,
bed and breakfast.

Tuesday

Today’s excursion takes us north along
the coast to Broadstairs and Deal then to the
historic cathedral city of Canterbury where we
have the afternoon to explore at your own pace.
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. There is a maze of intriguing side streets
with a rich variety of specialist shops and
welcoming cafes and pubs in which to relax.

Wednesday

Enjoy a day at leisure to discover
Folkestone where there is evidence of Roman
settlement from the 1st Century A.D. and the
recently restored harbour Arm with its
magnificent views and a restaurant and bars
adjacent to the Fishing Museum. Definitely
worth a visit!

Thursday

A short ride takes us to the small
resort of Hythe where we join the worlds famous
Romney Hythe and Dymchurch railway – Kent’s
mainline in miniature. The train takes us
alongside Romney Marsh to New Romney where
we take a short break and rejoin the coach to
continue to ancient Rye, one of the Cinque Ports,
now some distance from the sea!

Friday

After breakfast we depart for home.
