Last year we visited Chartwell, Churchill’s home, on a day when it was entry-free to everyone not just National Trust members. It was packed, the car park was full and we and others were driving around looking for a space to park. We gave up! Today was completely different and it was almost empty despite the glorious, late Spring day. Churchill was a keen, self-taught painter and his studio is well worth a look. We had a lovely day.
If you’re thinking of a trip to Groombridge Place, check out Tripadvisor first! Though these pictures make it look rather attractive, it’s actually quite sad and run down. Apparently the company running it went into liquidation in May, which no doubt explains a lot.
