Gateway to the Garden of England

Nestled in the valley of the River Darent, Westerham is a pretty Kentish town boasting cosy cafes, quaint boutique shops and glorious countryside. With so many beautiful gardens and ornamental parks around the town, you'd never guess you're less than half an hour from Gatwick airport. Spend an afternoon at the stunning Chart Edge Gardens, with its exotic plants and captivating water features, or climb Toys Hill for fantastic panoramic views across Kent.

Retrace the footsteps of famous Brits

Westerham was once home to none other than Sir Winston Churchill. Chartwell, the house and gardens he resided in until his death, are open to the public to explore the life of the former prime minister. Along with artefacts from the house, you can also admire a collection of paintings made by the man himself. While you're retracing the footsteps of Britain's greats, visit Quebec House, a 17th century redbrick property that was once the home of General James Wolfe, who led Britain to victory in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham.

Enjoy a drink at a traditional British pub

For a small market town, Westerham isn't short of excellent pubs. The town prides itself on its local brewery, as well as its local wines made from grapes grown on the North Downs. Enjoy a home-brewed beverage at the General Wolfe Pub, or visit the George and Dragon, once frequented by the likes of Winston Churchill and Pitt the Younger. Planning a trip to Westerham?
