Leeds Castle, Churchill's Chartwell House & Hever Castle
Just to the south of London lie three of England’s most iconic houses and castles, all easily accessible by car in a day.
Leeds Castle is a fairytale setting brought to life, rising out of it’s own lake. “The most romantic Castle in the world” was once a home to Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon.
According to Winston Churchill “A day away from Chartwell is a day wasted”. Chartwell House was the family home of Sir Winston and his beloved wife ‘Clemmy’. Now open to the public, it affords a rare opportunity to see the life behind the scenes, of the man who shepherded the world to victory in WWII.
Hever Castle was the seat of the Boleyn family. Ambitious, power hungry and ruthless to get ahead, one sister would become Henry VIII’s mistress and be cast aside. The other would become his wife and the most controversial Queen in English history.
