I didn't really know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Great house, brilliant grounds, and a fantastic Churchill exhibition. The knowledge and passion of some of the staff is incredible. Let them tell you the stories and history if the pieces on display and enjoy a day of educational discovery.
Nice place to visit and will satisfy all your Churchill-based needs. Some of the walks can be a bit muddy during damper times of the year and it's not easy to manoeuvre a push chair or pram around some bits, but otherwise it's pretty good.
This was one of the most interesting places I have ever visited. I wouldn't have believed Winston Churchill did snd achieved so much in his life. He was an amazing man. Both the house and gardens were so fascinating, I would definitely go again.
