Chartwell house is the much loved long term home of Sir Winston and Lady Clementine Churchill and their family. The Churchill's lived there from 1924 until 1965. The house went straight from them to the National Trust and is a perfectly preserved time capsule and monument to the Great Man and his much cherished Wife. Everything you see is original, and belonged to him and his family. 

On arrival we will take a gentle stroll around the grounds and gardens at Chartwell. Here you will see the Churchill's love of water features including the ponds and lakes built by Sir Winston himself. You will see the very view that made Winston fall in love with the estate, leading him to purchase the property without the knowledge of his wife Clementine. 

Many visitors to Chartwell remark that they can feel the presence of Churchill especially in the Study with its ancient Tudor Oak beams which would have been seasoned with years of Sir Winston's Cigar smoke. In this room he wrote many of his world famous speeches and volumes of his history of the Second World War. The library is also perfectly preserved and the shelves contain books left in the original positions as catalogued by Churchill himself.

Did you know Sir Winston was a bricklayer? Well you will see his handy work in the walled garden and the cottage he built as a play house for his daughter Mary.

You will have time to enjoy the house at your leisure, and your guide will be pleased to show you items of particular interest. If we are lucky we may bump in to one of the room guides that actually worked for the Churchill's in the 1960's.

After the house maybe you will want to visit the gift shop, or perhaps have a look at the onsite book shop.
Lunch can either be taken at the restaurant at Chartwell, or we can drive to the nearby village of Westerham to enjoy the atmosphere of a 500 year old pub, the walls adorned with Churchill memorabilia and quotes.
