  • Day 1 - London - Chartwell House - Hever Castle - Canterbury 

    Today we’ll take the trail of statesmen and Tudors as we depart London and travel to 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. When we’ve had a look around, it’s onwards to Hever Castle, the fairytale childhood home of Anne Boleyn. The ornamental English rose gardens and the swan-filled lake are superb for strolling around. Tonight, we’ll sit down to enjoy a welcome dinner together. Accommodation: Abode Hotel (or similar)
