Itinerary

Day 1: Travel to Kent, home to a remarkable number of Kings, Queens and famous leaders, and on this tour we enter the regal and stately world of historic figures. Our hotel, which is set in the beautiful Kent countryside, has an impressive indoor pool and modern gym and sports fans will love the motorsport themed bar, which overlooks the Brands Hatch Racing Circuit.

Day 2: We begin with a visit to 14th century Penshurst Place, once owned by King Henry VIII. We have a guided tour of the house and enjoy some free time for lunch here before we head to nearby Hever Castle, childhood home of Anne Boleyn. This 700 year old royal home has award winning gardens and stunning interior.

Day 3: Today we have a full day to visit the home of Time - Greenwich, where we explore its famous attractions. You have the option of visiting the Royal Observatory, the historic sailing ship Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum (free of charge), or Queen’s House Art Gallery (free of charge). For the shoppers, there is also Greenwich Market to enjoy.

Day 4: Enjoy an indoor winery tour at Denbies Wine Estate in Surrey, one of the largest wine producers in the UK, with 265 acres of vines – of which we are guided through a tasting of Denbies’ classic wine. We then visit the former home of Sir Winston Churchill at Chartwell. The house remains much the same as when this influential family lived here, with fascinating pictures, books and personal mementoes on display. Explore the gardens and see the place Churchill used to sit and feed his Golden Orfe, and the wall he built with his own hands.

Day 5: After breakfast, we return to Waterside.
