👣 Hiking Chartwell

We’re off to explore Chartwell – the home for over 40 years of one of Britain’s greatest politicians, Sir Winston Churchill!

There is so much to see at Chartwell, particularly in summer, when rose gardens are in full bloom and every corner bursts with colour! Therefore, just this once, we decided we make an exception and combine a hike with a visit to Chartwell!

We will discover Churchill’s family house, filled with treasures from every aspect of Winston’s life, admire fantastic views of the Weald of Kent, the lakes with black swans (a gift to Churchill from the Australian Government) and the pond with golden orfe, where Churchill could sit for hours feeding his beloved fish. We will stroll through the Golden Rose Avenue and Lady Clementine’s Rose Garden, taking in delicious smells of over 15 varieties of roses. Why not bring a blanket and enjoy a picnic alongside the lakes in the beautiful grounds of Chartwell?

Apart from Churchill, our hike will be tightly related to another historical figure – Octavia Hill. Octavia Hill was a social activist and the co-founder of the National Trust – the conservation charity which, together with English Heritage, manages and protects hundreds of historic places and green spaces around the UK – for ever, for everyone.
