World Superyacht Awards Social Programme, a day in the country
A day in the country, West Wycombe Estate with E J Churchill – The home of Shooting
We have prepared a special opportunity for our guests to experience the historic West Wycombe Estate, the private residence of Sir Edward and Lady Dashwood.
Following breakfast in the famous Hellfire Caves, guests will shoot simulated flurries across a variety of locations around the Estate. Experience is not required as guests will be assisted by professional instructors, including some of the best game shots and competitive clay shot specialists in the world. With varied terrain including roads, river crossings and 45 degree hills, guests will also have the opportunity to test their off road skills between the shooting stands in 4x4 vehicles. Following completion of the shoot, guests will return to West Wycombe House for a champagne reception and a Michelin star lunch.
The house today is frequently featured in film and TV series, most recently as one of the locations for Downton Abbey. Other appearances include, The Importance of Being Earnest, I Capture the Castle, The Lost Prince and W.E.
