Historical attractions for kids and adults alike by Dinah Hatch

"Come on, who isn’t fascinated by Winston Churchill? The larger than life hero of our times lived a rural life in his country home Chartwell near Edenbridge in Kent and, thanks to the National Trust, you can walk through the wonderfully preserved rooms (period décor circa 1920s and 1930s) and have a nose at the photographs, books and pictures that have been left just as the great man had them – there is even a box of cigars on the table. Memorabilia and recordings of the former prime minister in full pomp send a chill down your spine and afterwards you get to see the softer side of the man, when you pop into his studio where he used to paint. Make sure you tag onto a guided tour as the staff are excellent and very knowledgeable."
