Dover or Chartwell, then London, England
Monday, June 9 - Wednesday, June 11
Post tour guests can choose between exploring Dover Castle and the wartime tunnels or heading to Winston Churchill's country estate of Chartwell. At Dover you will see how Britain's "first line of defense" against the possible German invasion and the Luftwaffe lived in the bunkers and tunnels along the "White Cliffs of Dover."
At Chartwell, guests will see where the “Greatest Briton of the 20th Century” lived. Sir Winston claimed, "a day spent away from Chartwell is a day wasted," and you will see why in his large, yet simple, country home.View Itinerary
