Itinerary

Monday Travelling from Cornwall to the lovely county of Kent, we settle in to our hotel and enjoy a welcome drink on arrival.

Tuesday Today begins with a visit to the 14th century Penshurst Place and Gardens, once the property of King Henry VIII. Later we move on to Hever Castle where we experience 700 years of history at the romantic double-moated castle once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.

Wednesday Our journey takes us to Royal Greenwich for a visit to the National Maritime Museum, possibly the largest museum of its kind in the world. The historic buildings form part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage site and there will be time to explore this wonderful area.

Thursday Heading through the Kent countryside we make our way to the Denbies Wine Estate for a classic tasting experience which includes a virtual tour of the estate and some of its history. In the afternoon we visit Chartwell, the much-loved family home of Winston Churchill. The hillside gardens reflect Sir Winston’s love of the landscape and nature.

Friday Leaving the lovely county of Kent we sit back and enjoy our journey back to Cornwall.
