Stefan Buczacki's new book, based on an extensive study of original documents, provides a fascinating biography of Winston Churchill through the houses he lived in and the gardens he made. It contains much new information, unknown even to Churchill scholars, and this will be the only opportunity to hear Stefan talking about his book in London.
Born amidst the splendour of Blenheim Palace but, ever a restless spirit, Churchill owned or rented many houses, both grand and relatively modest, over the course of his long life, including country retreats, modern town apartments and, as First Lord of the Admiralty, Admiralty House. But it was his house at Chartwell that would be forever associated with his name.
There will be the opportunity to buy signed copies of the book after the talk.
