Westerham is a tiny area in Kent with a population of approximately 5000, giving it a real village atmosphere. Located 25 miles south of Central London, it enjoys more of a rural setting with the River Darent which runs through the centre and its position on the North Downs.
Despite its diminutive size, Westerham is full of history and fascinating sights.
Church of St Mary the Virgin was first built in the 13th century with an 18th century front elevation. With a range of memorial tables and brasses from over the centuries and a 14th century spiral staircase, this is a real delight for any history buffs.
While you’re walking around Westerham keep your eyes open for the statues which can be found. Sir Winston Churchill is cast in bronze and sits atop a large stone plinth which was generously donated. Churchill’s former home in Westerham, Chartwell, is a National Trust property and has been preserved exactly as it was when the Churchill family lived there.
General Wolfe is another local hero having been born in Westerham in 1727. After his death in the Battle of Quebec where he led the British Army to victory, a stone statue was erected in 1911. The renamed Quebec House is the childhood home of General Wolfe and is also a National Trust attraction. Recreated to tell the tale of the Battle of Quebec, it’s a wonderful glimpse into the past.
There are some beautiful outdoor spaces in and around Westerham, such as Tower Wood on Hosey Hill. As well as offering a magnificent wooded space, Hosey Hill is also home to Folly Tower dating back to the 18th century. Originally built to try and catch a glimpse of St Paul’s Cathedral, 21 miles away, the derelict ruins still stand.
As a highly desirable commuter area, Westerham has some good shopping. Independent boutiques line the centre of the town, and there’s a great selection of pubs, restaurants and bars too.
