Tour Itinerary

  • Day 1 - London - Chartwell House - Canterbury 

    After meeting the group in London, we’ll set a course for our first historic stop: Chartwell House. Many of us will know the public face of Sir Winston Churchill, but a chance to see inside Chartwell will give us a glimpse into his private home. From the library to the sitting room and study, this red stone manor is a time capsule brimming with insights into 1930s family life. We’ll move on to Canterbury this afternoon – where a welcome dinner awaits. Accommodation: Abode Hotel (or similar)
