Leeds Castle is just an hour's drive from London - in the county of Kent. The stone palace with more than a thousand-year history welcomes tourists from all over the world and, in addition to standard excursions, offers travellers a whole range of entertainment; from golf to falconry. This medieval structure, built on two islands in the middle of the lake, strikes at first sight the perfection of forms and how harmoniously it is inscribed in the surrounding landscape. When tourists know, in what century the castle was built, emotions overwhelm everyone: after all, its history has been conducted since 857. It was then that in the county of Kent (south-east England) Sir Lydian (in other historical sources - Lid) founded in this place a fortress. At first, it was wooden, then it was rebuilt a lot, and the final look acquired in the 14th century.

Canterbury Cathedral is the main temple of England: its archbishop heads the church of the country. The cathedral is a masterpiece of architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In length (178 m) it is the largest in Europe. Here you can see the oldest stained-glass window in Europe, as well as visit the burial place of Edward the Black Prince. Dover is a small town located in the east of England, in the county of Kent. It is a port city on the coast of the Passa de Calais, the narrowest point of the English Channel. On the opposite side is already located continental Europe and France. The town's population is just over 28 thousand people.

 

The port of Dover is considered one of the most important ports in Europe. One of the main attractions of the city is the Dover Castle, one of the largest in the area in the UK. From the outset, this castle is strategically important. The foundation of the castle is considered to be the 1st century AD. At the same time, two lighthouses were built, one of which has survived to this day. The castle is perfectly preserved to the present day and today the museum is located here. Another of the main attractions is the White Rocks of Dover. The cliffs of bright white have a height of up to 107 meters and are the most popular. These rocks are visible from the French coast.

 

The Royal Observatory in Greenwich played an important role in the history of astronomy and navigation, this place is known as the zero meridian. Located on the hill of the Greenwich Park with a view of the Thames. The observatory was commissioned in 1675 by King Charles II, in the following year's various studies were carried out and today it is a popular tourist attraction.

 

Four different meridians pass through the building, the zero meridian was marked with brass tape. Later it was replaced with steel, and on December 16, 1999, a bright beam of a green laser turned on, shining exactly to the north. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT - Greenwich Mean Time) is more correctly called World Time (Universal Time).
