Three places in England that were dear to Sir Winston Churchill, wartime prime minister and regarded as one of the greatest men in British history.
Sir Winston Churchill is widely considered to be the greatest Briton in history, and the recent cinematic release of the former Prime Minister in Churchill shows he remains a figure of fascination.

Churchill was born, two months prematurely, at Blenheim Palace into the aristocratic family of the Dukes of Marlborough. The stately home sits on more than 2,000 acres of parkland and is a 20-minute drive north of Oxford or a one-hour 45-minute journey from London.
