Biggin Hill and Chartwell

An exploration of Kent at war and the peace-time passions of the Churchill family.

Just 7 miles apart, combine a visit to Biggin Hill Memorial Museum with Chartwell this winter and discover a mixture of Kent at war and the
pastimes of the Churchill family during a world at peace.

At Biggin Hill Memorial Museum discover Britain’s most famous fighter station and the inspiring stories of the brave people and technical
innovations of the Second World War that have shaped our world today. The most important airfield of the 1940 Battle of Britain, even today RAF Biggin Hill is still internationally recognised as Sir Winston Churchill’s strongest link.

Compliment your visit with a trip to Chartwell, the much-loved Churchill family home and explore the private side of the politician during times of peace. Though the house is only open in December over winter, from the landscape to Churchill’s paintings, the fascinating collection on display in the exhibition room to the views of the Weald of Kent that so captivated Churchill – each element weaves together a story that tells the lives of the Churchill family.
