    Itinerary Details

    Just south east of London is the county of Kent, the garden of England. This is the wine, ale and fruit producing region. Nestled down an old country lane is Hever Castle and Garden, a small romantic castle surrounded by spectacular Italian style gardens. The castle was the childhood home of Queen Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII. The main building and estate fell into disrepair and was eventually renovated by the famous American millionaire, William Waldorf Astor. He was able to rebuild the Tudor village, construct the gardens and completely restore the castle into a comfortable home with enchanting historic items on display. The gardens are special and feature a huge man made lake and traditional yew hedge maze.

    If the weather is fine you may like to have a picnic in the grounds of Hever Castle or head off to a delightful country pub, the choice is all yours.

    Chartwell gives the visitor a real insight into Britain’s great war time leader. The location and view from the house is what Churchill loved, he had a great interest in landscapes. Many of the rooms remain as much as they were when he lived there, pictures, books and an exhibit of gifts.

    And why we do it!

    Our aim is always to be an ‘upgrade’ to anything else available, but without going ‘over the top’ with our prices. We started our business by offering simple day tours and deliver them well. It was not long before our clients were asking us to include more services and events – this we took as a compliment and felt it showed they trusted us and had confidence that we would deliver to a high standard, without the fuss.
