A beautiful historic city, with the oldest Cathedral in England. Canterbury's history is also evident in its Roman Walls and medieval gatehouses. Its most iconic gatehouse, West Gate, is a popular attraction, with gardens and its own museum.

Our journey begins at London's Victoria Station as your steward welcomes you aboard. Soon after, we cross Grosvenor Bridge over the River Thames, pass the now decommissioned Battersea Power Station and chug out through the suburbs towards the rolling hills of Kent. Sit back and relax in the jovial atmosphere, enjoying views of oast houses from your window. All passengers will receive a souvenir booklet with a map and details of the route to add interest to your journey.
Upon arrival at Canterbury the time is yours to explore the city at your leisure. The delights of Canterbury will soon become obvious to any visitor but it is of course most famous for its cathedral. After a wonderful break we meet at the station and will welcome you back on board for our homeward journey.
Dining passengers will be served a breakfast on the outward journey and an evening meal on the return journey.
