Chartwell & Hever Castle – 9 hours
Chartwell was the home of Sir Winston Churchill who designed the gently rolling gardens edging onto the beautiful Kent countryside. Inside, rooms are kept as he would have known them with his many paintings and memorabilia of his life. Nearby is moated Hever Castle, where Henry VIII courted Anne Boleyn. Cross the drawbridge to see interiors restored by William Waldorf Astor, who also laid out Tudor and Italianate gardens. Lose yourself in the hedge maze or dodge about in the water maze.
