Time to Explore Kent & Greenwich

Kent has been home to a remarkable number of kings, queens and famous leaders and on this tour we enter the regal and stately world of historical figures who have wielded unique power and influence far beyond the Kentish borders, with visits to Penshurst Place, Hever Castle and Chartwell. We also enjoy a full day in historic Greenwich and sample wine at Denbies Wine Estate.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Penshurst Place & Hever Castle
After a leisurely breakfast, we begin with a visit to 14th century Penshurst Place, once owned by King Henry VIII. We have a guided tour of the house and enjoy free time for lunch here before we head for nearby Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn. We spend the afternoon exploring 125 acres of award winning gardens as well as the interior of this splendid 700 year old royal home, its maze, fascinating collection of miniature model houses, boating lake and Japanese Tea House.

Day 3 Greenwich
Today, we have a full day to visit the home of time, Greenwich, where we explore its famous attractions. We have the option of visiting the Royal Observatory, the historic sailing ship Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum (free entry) and the Queen’s House art gallery (free entry). For the shoppers amongst us, there is also Greenwich Market to enjoy (Tue-Sun).

Day 4 Denbies Wine Estate & Chartwell
Today we head for Denbies Wine Estate in Surrey, one of the largest wine
producers in the UK, with 265 acres of vines. We enjoy an indoor winery tour before we are guided through a tasting of Denbies’ classic wine. We then visit the former home of Sir Winston Churchill at Chartwell. The house remains much the same as when this
influential family lived here, with fascinating pictures, books and personal mementoes on display.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
