Chartwell & Hever Castle Tour

PRIVATE CHARTWELL-HEVER CASTLE TOUR – TYPICAL ITINERARY

INTRODUCTION
Your driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at the specified time. We recommend 8am. After a fast-route from London, your Private Chartwell-Hever Castle Tour takes us to the county of Kent. Here we visit the residences of two absolute giants of British history: Winston Churchill & Anne Boleyn.

CHURCHILL
Winston Spencer Churchill was recently voted greatest Briton of all time. He had a great historical impact, not just with his leadership during World War II, but right across the 20th century. As he battled to save civilization from the clutches of evil, how did he relax…?

CHARTWELL
…Here’s how: the gardening, plants, trees, buildings, waters and the complete landscape here are the vision of the great man. The house interior is also fascinating, and a guided tour uncovers his prolific work-rate.  No mean artist, either, and we will view his famous paintings.

LUNCH
Your driver-guide will suggest appropriate lunch options on the day. Perhaps a village tea-room, riverside restaurant or traditional pub. Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch or just grab a sandwich. It’s your tour, it’s your choice. (Note: Private Chartwell-Hever Castle Tour price does not include food or refreshments).

THE BOLEYN GIRL
Anne Boleyn, daughter of the scheming diplomat Thomas Boleyn, became the apple of Henry VIII’s roving eye. Her story and her fate, at the chopping block, changed English history forever. We will visit the Boleyn family tomb in the ancient church of St Peter’s, close to the family home.

HEVER CASTLE
A guided tour of Anne’s childhood home which later became the home of Henry’s estranged fourth wife Anne of Cleves. It contains many Tudor artefacts and is set in magnificent grounds. In the 20th century, it was bought and partly refurbished by the American millionaire William Waldorf Astor.
