About this wheelchair accessible Garden of England tour

This tour takes you out of the city to explore the Garden of England, also called: East Kent. Explore the surroundings of Dover with its stunning views during this seven-hour private tour. Your tour starts at the port of Dover, from where you cross the country-side to Fordwich. Along the way, you drive by some peculiarly named villages such as Timanstone and Goodenstone. Your first stop lies below Canterbury on the stunning river Stour Valley.


At this unique village, you see the Norman Church, the river crossing, and some lovely cottages that date back all the way to the 17th century. A great place to find yourself a refreshment in one of the traditional Kentish Inn’s. After Fordwich your driver guide takes you through the valley, and on a drive  through the secluded villages Shottenden and Old Wives Lees before arriving at your second stop Chilham.


In Chilham you get to admire the charming houses with their gardens. Take a look around, stay quiet for a while, and feel the calm; it truly is an oasis of peacefulness. From here, you head to the old market square. You see the timber-framed lodgings in the old town, a 16th-century abbey, and a majestic castle. Do not miss the viewpoints with some stunning views over the valley.


The tour continues through some other strangely names towns such as Challock and Pluckley to get to Biddenden’s village. This fairy-tale-like town welcomes its guests by a sign which displays the twin sisters Eliza and Mary, who lived here about 900 years ago.

Take a stroll around the town and discover how green the village is. Moreover, in the cute little cottages, you find options to enjoy typical British afternoon tea.

Once everyone is ready, you head back to Dover and your driver guide will drop you off at the cruise terminal again, to continue your holiday.
