After being picked up from your London Hotel by your very own private driver and guide you will be transported to the beautiful Kent countryside (Approximately one hour from London)

Chartwell house is the much loved long term home of Sir Winston and Lady Clementine Churchill and their family. The Churchill's lived there from 1924 until 1965. The house went straight from them to the National Trust and is a perfectly preserved time capsule and monument to the Great Man and his much cherished Wife. Everything you see is original, and belonged to him and his family. 

On arrival we will take a gentle stroll around the grounds and gardens at Chartwell. Here you will see the Churchill's love of water features including the ponds and lakes built by Sir Winston himself. You will see the very view that made Winston fall in love with the estate, leading him to purchase the property without the knowledge of his wife Clementine. 

Did you know Sir Winston was a bricklayer? Well you will see his handy work in the walled garden and the cottage he built as a play house for his daughter Mary.

You will have time to enjoy the house at your leisure, and your guide will be pleased to show you items of particular interest.

After the house maybe you will want to visit the gift shop, or perhaps have a look at the onsite book shop.
Lunch can either be taken at the restaurant on site, or we can drive to the nearby village of Westerham to enjoy the atmosphere of a 500 year old pub.

Then it will be back to London and to the Cabinet War Rooms (Churchill War Rooms) to explore the secret bunker below the streets of Westminster. This Top Secret underground lair was used to keep Officials and the Prime Minister safe during WW2, and to enable the planning of the Allied Victory.
Experience life underground, and hear the stories of the men and women who played a vital role alongside the legendary Sir Winston Churchill. The museum and legacy exhibition to the great man will be a fitting way to end our day, and you will be dropped back off at your hotel or central London location.

A non rushed, and bespoke trip at your pace with your own private driver and guide.
