Itinerary Full Day

If you have a… Full Day in Westerham

A chance to delve deeper and discover more, we’re sure Westerham won’t disappoint…

1Probably one of the most famous of Westerham’s connections is that with Sir Winston Churchill. Not only is his statue on The Green, but his family home, Chartwell is just a mile outside the town. With a day to spend, then it’s certainly worth spending half of it at Chartwell.


ChurchillIf you start early, then you’ll have time to Walk round Westerham (see a half day in Westerham) – or alternatively browse the shops for a couple of hours before heading off to Chartwell for the rest of the day.


ChartwellDrive there – there’s plenty of parking space – and stop off in its restaurant for a snack before visiting the house (timed entry ticket arrangement applies) where rooms remain much as they were when it was a family home . Wander the gardens, and visit the Studio where many of Churchill’s own paintings are displayed.


At the end of the day, do come back to Westerham for a meal, or a final drink before wending your way home.
2With its spectacular countryside within easy reach, Westerham is the ideal starting point for many a walk in the area, both gentle strolls, or more energetic hikes…


North DownsThe long distance footpath, the North Downs Way runs to the north of Westerham on its way from  Farnham in Surrey to Dover – for much of its way following the same route as the Pilgrims Way along which pilgrims travelled from Canterbury to Winchester. The 108 miles of the Greensand Way passes to the south of the town along the Greensand ridge. Both have excellent views and are worth the effort for a wander…


WalkingHave a look as well at the booklet Westerham History Trails, (available locally) which as well as providing a guide to local walks, gives an interesting and entertaining insight into the history of the town and some of its famous – and infamous – former inhabitants.
