Immersing yourself in the historical footsteps of the great Winston Churchill will be a fascinating experience for tourists. A new 7-day tour in the UK will allow you to follow a route that highlights important stages of his life and career as a former prime minister.

You will be able to appreciate his workspace, filled with historical artifacts and important documents, dive into the thoughts of a political genius and see how the fate of the nation was shaped. Robb Report writes about what interesting things the founders of the Winston Churchill tour offer.

Start of the tour

Your fascinating adventure begins by highlighting moments from Churchill's early life at the magnificent Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, where the great man was born. The next stage is the place of his final resting place, St. Martin's Church in Blaydon. From here, the route leads to Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes, where tourists will see the once secret workplace of the famous Enigma code breakers, whom Churchill looked upon as "geese that lay golden eggs and never quack."

Churchill's school and career

Your adventure continues in the nation's capital, where you will visit Winston Churchill's alma mater, Harrow School, founded in 1572. Located on a 300-acre green estate, this unique school retains an original classroom filled with furniture from nearly 400 years ago.

Upon arrival in London, you will walk through the military corridors of the Cabinet, including the Transatlantic Telephone Room, where Churchill discussed issues with President Roosevelt, the Map Room, which served around the clock, and the great leader's private bedroom. History buffs can visit the Churchill memorials in Westminster Abbey and Parliament Square.
