A walk around the most exclusive area of London.
This part of the tour focuses on the young, ambitious, war hero and bachelor Winston Churchill, keen to make a mark in the world.

We will visit his first Childhood home, Bachelor pad, and the home he set up with his Wife Clementine, plus a visit to some of his favourite tailors.

You will also have time to pose with Churchill and Roosevelt at the Allies Statue.

Savile Row
This is where you go to get a bespoke Suit, Shirt, or formal wear.

Stop at Henry Poole and Co. This historic Saville Row Tailor has had a long association with the Churchill family. They made suits for Winston's father Randolph, and many for Winston throughout his life. (They produced the famous Pinstripe Suit in the Tommy Gun photo of Churchill.) Apparently Winston Churchill still owes the company some money, and the Tailors would always find Cigar Stubs in the pockets when suits came in for alterations.

Recently Henry Poole and Co were called upon to make Gary Oldman's suits for the movie The Darkest Hour.

St. James's
"I am a man of simple tastes; I am easily satisfied with the best." - Winston Churchill.

Turnbull & Asser
Churchill was a snappy dresser, but sometimes he needed something practical but comfortable when out in the grounds of his country estate Chartwell, or during the cold nights watching the bombs falling over London. Enter the 'Romper Suit' or 'Siren Suit' as it became known. Churchill trusted only one company to make these to his specifications, his shirt maker Turnbull & Asser.

This company was also the first company Prince Charles gave a Royal Warrant to.

James J. Fox & Robert Lewis
Sir Winston was hardly ever pictured without his trademark Cigar. His favorite brand was Romeo Y Julieta. On this tour you will go to the Cigar Merchant where he bought his Cigars, you can sit in his chair, and even sample a Cigar in the upstairs lounge!

Parliament Square
Across the road from the Houses of Parliament the statue of Sir Winston Churchill gazes at his beloved House of Commons.

Churchill was offered a peerage, and a Dukedome but turned them both down as this would stop him or his male descendants serving in the house. Let's pause here for a while and discuss the political life and anecdotes of this extraordinary man.
