Wednesday

We travel south and visit beautiful Chartwell House (NT), the family home where Britain's wartime Prime Minister lived for more than 40 years. See the rooms as they were in Churchill's time right down to the daily papers and his famous cigars. Bought by Sir Winston for its magnificent views over the Weald of Kent to Sussex, Chartwell was his home and the place from which he drew inspiration from 1924 until the end of his life. 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. Later, we continue to our hotel for our overnight stay..

Thursday

In the morning we visit Canterbury for free time to explore this historic city. In the afternoon we drive to Folkestone to be welcomed aboard the elegant Belmont British Pullman - part of the Venice Simplon 'Orient Express'. We will travel in pristine amber and cream carriages with their marquetry, ornate brass accoutrements, engraved glass and mosaic floors and during our memorable two-hour ride to London, afternoon tea will be served. Following this altogether decadent experience, our coach will be waiting at Victoria Station to return us home.
