Celebrate Christmas in the county of Kent, named traditionally as the Garden of England, based upon its abundance of orchards and hop gardens. This holiday is centred in Canterbury; once a major focus of pilgrimage, it is now a popular destination for holidaymakers drawn by both the natural beauty and the historical intrigue held within the boundary of old Roman walls. We also visit Leeds Castle, described as the loveliest castle in the world.

Day 1
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Canterbury and the ABode Canterbury (4T). We aim for you to arrive at the hotel between 4pm and 5pm, with the rest of the day at leisure. Perhaps take a short walk into the historic city of Canterbury. Tea, coffee and mince pies will be served on arrival and dinner is included this evening.

Day 2
After breakfast, take an included excursion to Leeds Castle, set in 500 acres of glorious gardens. Leeds 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 now one of the most visited historic buildings in Britain. You may choose to spend your free afternoon taking a leisurely stroll into Canterbury. This evening, dinner is followed by entertainment.

Day 3
Breakfast will start your day of feasts and celebrations. This morning is free for you to enjoy and information will be available, should you wish to attend mass. A traditional Christmas lunch is served, then watch The Queen’s speech this afternoon or simply relax, before an evening buffet.

Day 4
After breakfast, join an included walk from the hotel to the centre of Canterbury, for a guided tour. A modern and vibrant city, it is home to the ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church - which form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site - while other ancient ruins such as the Castle are reminders of the city's history, heritage and culture. Time here is incomplete without visiting stunning Canterbury Cathedral, the oldest church in Britain that is still in use. The rest of the day is free for you to explore other important sites and ancient ruins. Dinner is arranged for this evening, with entertainment.

Day 5
You will be collected at 10am by your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.

You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.
