Morning departure and we make our way to Bridgewood Manor Hotel. Stops will be made en route.

Today we travel along the North Kent coastline through Whitstable and Herne Bay to Margate where you have free time to enjoy the Harbour or Old Town with its array of vintage shops. In the afternoon, we will travel to Canterbury where you can have time at leisure in this historic town; you can visit the Cathedral or travel back in time at Canterbury Tales.

Today’s excursion takes us to Chatham and the famous Historic Naval Dockyard. This vast maritime heritage site offers much to see, with an abundance of historic buildings dating from 1704, three warships, dry docks, Royal Dockyard Museum and much more. This afternoon in the dockyard we enjoy the ‘Call the Midwife’ tour led by the dockyard’s very own ‘Midwife’; we visit areas, which have been used as locations for many of the scenes in the popular TV series. After the tour we have afternoon tea in the Commissioner’s House which was used as a 1950s’-style restaurant on the programme (included).

After an early breakfast we depart for a journey on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway to relax and enjoy the scenic coastline. We board the train and travel from Hythe to Dungeness. For the past 88 years the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway has been an integral part of the landscape of the Romney Marsh. Known as “Kent’s Mainline in Miniature”, the World Famous one-third full size locomotives have powered their way along the 13½ miles of track from the Cinque Port town of Hythe, terminating in Dungeness; a National Nature Reserve and one of the largest shingle landscapes in the world. There are 4 stations in between, all within walking distance of a beach, the railway provides you with an opportunity to explore this unique corner of Kent.

After breakfast we sadly have to depart for home with comfort stops en route.
