Itinerary

Day 1

We board our private executive coach at Church and on arrival in London we visit Tyburn Convent near Marble Arch, the site of the former Tyburn Tree, where between 1535 and 1681, 105 Catholics were martyred during the Reformation. During our visit we have a guided tour of the Crypt and celebrate Holy Mass. We continue to the 3* Clarendon Hotel at Blackheath for a three night stay on a half board basis.

Day 2

Our Blue Badge guide meets us at our hotel this morning and accompanies us throughout the day. We visit the Tower of London, the site of the execution of SS Thomas More, John Fisher and other Catholic Martyrs. We enjoy a guided tour led by our Blue Badge guide, followed by free time to visit the White Tower, the Jewel House and other parts of the tower. We continue to Westminster Cathedral, the mother church of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. We attend mass before returning to our hotel.

Day 3

This morning we travel to Canterbury and on arrival we visit the Cathedral where St Thomas Beckett was murdered in 1170. The Shrine of Thomas Beckett in the Trinity Chapel attracted thousands of pilgrims prior to its destruction by Henry VIII. The rest of the day is at leisure in Canterbury, with Mass taking place during the afternoon.

Day 4

After checking out of our hotel this morning and en route home, we visit Arundel Castle, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Norfolk. We continue to Arundel Cathedral and the shrine of St Philip Howard. The Cathedral is Grade I listed, and regarded as one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in the French Gothic style in the country. Following mass in Arundel, we return to our original departure point, taking carefully selected comfort stops en route.
