Highlights

Start the excursion with a visit to the renowned Battle of Britain Museum located on the site of the aerodrome from where Spitfires and Hurricanes took off during the Battle of Britain. Continue via the Edwardian seaside resort of Folkestone, where we drive along the Leas promenade to the historic harbour, from where soldiers left in the Great War for the Western Front. Next visit the poignant Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel-Le-Ferne. Passing through Dover overlooked by its imposing Norman Castle, we soon reach picturesque St Margaret’s Bay nestled underneath the spectacular White Cliffs of Dover. To complete the experience, enjoy an included traditional ‘cream tea’ in a typical English tearoom, where we also find a fascinating museum dedicated to WW2.
