Leeds Castle and Canterbury

The Normans built this castle 900 years ago. The epitome of a perfect English scene. Set on an island, this castle has been adorned by no less than 5 queens of England.  The condition today is also due to the love and investment of the last private owner Lady Baillie. It's a cosy home with inspirational interior design, filled with antiques.

Canterbury a much loved thriving English medieval town, home of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Head of the Worldwide Anglican Community. A magnificent cathedral, whose foundation dates back 1400 years, frequented by flocks of pilgrims in the Middle Ages, eager to pay their respects and draw on the powers of St Thomas Becket who was brutally murdered by his King's knights. Today it forms part of a World Heritage Site.
