KNOWL and/or CHARTWELL in Kent from London by train?

Jump to last reply

Have you ever been to either destination? I am thinking of visiting one when I go to London in early June. I would take the train from Charing Cross to SEVENOAKS on a weekday- from there it is a one and a half mile taxi ride to Knowl or a six mile fare to Chartwell.

Of course, I love all things Churchill and have always wanted to see Chartwell. But then I am reading the bio of Vita Sackville-West (she of Sissinghurst fame) who grew up at Knowl, but could not inherit the estate being a female (something like the opening part of Downton Abbey). Both are National Historic Trust properties, of course.

I enjoy gardens, but am more interested in the houses.

Could I do Chartwell in the morning and then saunter through Knowl before getting the train back to London? Do I have the energy? LOL

Going in June, I hope that I could gain entry to either without too much hassle.
Your thoughts appreciated.
