The south of England boasts a coastline almost as dramatic as its 4,000-year history.

Take advantage of a photo stop offering a fantastic view of the stark and strategically important Dover Castle.

The road north leads through rolling green countryside to medieval Canterbury -- site of the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral. Learn of the cathedral's epic history from your guide as you view the exterior -- it was built in two stages: AD 1070-1184 and 1391-1505. Enter the cathedral for an unguided tour of the building in which Archbishop Thomas Becket was murdered in 1170 -- a story immortalized in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. There will be an opportunity to browse in the shops of Canterbury before returning to the ship at Dover.


This tour is available only to guests whose cruise does not begin or end in Dover. Inside church visit(s) may not be possible if religious services are being held.
