The country home of Winston Churchill still looks as if the family has just stepped out for a walk. A visit here is a peek into the private life of the wartime prime minister who lived here for 40 years from 1922. Don’t miss Churchill’s desk arranged with framed photos, cigars and spectacles, and his garden studio crammed with his own paintings.

The hillside gardens also offer glimpses into the leader’s life and mind. See the lakes he created, The Marycot – the miniature house he built for his daughters – and explore a network of trails through the surrounding woodland. You’ll likely stumble across natural play areas and a Canadian camp.
