Entrances to Leeds Castle, Penshurst Place, Sissinghurst Garden (NT) & Chartwell (NT)
Train ride on the Kent & East Sussex Railway & tour of Biddenden Vineyards
Not included: All lunches
We journey south, commencing with a visit to Leeds Castle. Originally Norman, built on two islands in a lake, it has often been described as "the loveliest castle in the world". A romantic stone bridge links the keep, which rises sheer from the lake, and the turreted main building. The interior is graced with splendid works of art, statues, carvings and tapestries.
Today we drive to Tenterden where we enjoy a nostalgic train journey on the Kent & East Sussex Railway, returning via Biddenden Vineyards where we include a vineyard walk, winery talk and a complimentary glass of wine.
Explore the wonderful historic spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, with its elegant architecture and colonnaded 18th century walkway known as the Pantiles. In the afternoon, we visit the delightful manor house and gardens at Penshurst Place, one of England's oldest family homes.
We visit Sissinghurst Gardens (NT), one of the world's most celebrated gardens and was the creation of Vita Sackville-West and her husband Sir Harold Nicholson. There is an intimate and romantic atmosphere and the gardens offer an array of colour throughout the seasons.
Departing our hotel we visit Chartwell (NT), the family home of Sir Winston Churchill. The rooms and gardens remain much as they were when he lived here, with pictures, books, maps and personal mementoes strongly evoking the career and wide-ranging interests of this great statesman. Departing mid-afternoon we arrive home during the early evening.
