Private Visit To Petworth House

Just look at how the people are dwarfed by the sheer size of PETWORTH HOUSE  (Above)
This vast late 17th-century mansion is set in a beautiful 700-acre deer park, landscaped by 'Capability' Brown and immortalised in Turner's paintings.
The estate continues to be managed as a deer park but there is also a flower garden with a Doric temple and an Ionic rotunda.
 

Inside, the house contains the National Trust's finest collection of pictures, with numerous works by J.M.W. Turner, Van Dyck, Reynolds and Blake

Private Visit To Chartwell

  THE HOUSE
We will begin with a self guided visit around the house which takes 45minutes to an hour.

There are lots of volunteers to answer any questions.
The rooms remain much as they were when Sir Winston Churchill lived there, with pictures, books and personal mementos evoking the career and wide-ranging interests of this great statesman, writer, painter and family man.
 
 
 
THE HILLSIDE GARDENS
The gardens reflect Sir Winston’s love of the landscape and nature.

They include the lakes he created, the rose & kitchen garden and the Marycot (a playhouse designed for his youngest daughter Mary).
 
 
  THE STUDIO
  We will see an array of Churchill’s
paintings in the studio.
