Things to do in Lingfield

  • British Wildlife Centre

    The British Wildlife Centre is located at Newchapel, near Lingfield in the county of Surrey. The centre was founded by David Mills in 1997, converting a former dairy farm into a centre to celebrate British Wildlife. Initially the centre was only open to pre-booked groups but then in 2000 it was opened to the general public.

  • Chartwell

    Chartwell is a country house near the town of Westerham, Kent in South East England. For over forty years it was the home of Winston Churchill. He bought the property in September 1922 and lived there until shortly before his death in January 1965. In the 1930s, when Churchill was excluded from political office, Chartwell became the centre of his world. At his dining table, he gathered those who could assist his campaign against German re-armament and the British government's response of appeasement; in his study, he composed speeches and wrote books; in his garden, he built walls, constructed lakes and painted. During the Second World War Chartwell was largely unused, the Churchills returning after he lost the 1945 election. In 1953, when again Prime Minister, the house became Churchill's refuge when he suffered a devastating stroke. In October 1964, he left for the last time, dying at his London home, 28, Hyde Park Gate, on 24 January 1965.
