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.

Notes:

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.
