“A day away from Chartwell is a day wasted.” – Churchill.

Bring the story of Sir Winston Churchill to life by walking in his footsteps at Chartwell House and Gardens. Explore the Churchill family’s former home, now expertly and lovingly managed by the National Trust.

With our Chartwell tour you will see the desk where Churchill wrote many of his famous speeches and Nobel-prize-winning books, along with viewing the many awards and personal artefacts which help provide a special insight into Churchill and his family. (Bibliophiles may also wish to consider our tour of Charles Dickens’ Rochester.)

Get up close to the treasured family photographs and discover the iconic wartime leader’s own paintings in the very studio where many were produced – Chartwell proudly houses the largest collection of Churchill’s paintings found anywhere in the world.

During your visit to Chartwell House and its glorious gardens, learn about Sir Winston Churchill’s achievements and get local stories of the Churchill family’s way of life.

Enjoy the same beautiful scenery that inspired much of the great man’s painting, including a view of The Weald of Kent.

Don’t miss out on experiencing Chartwell with an expert local guide. John will bring his passion and extensive knowledge to the subject to give you a truly unforgettable Chartwell House tour.

This privately guided visit to Chartwell may be upgraded to include other nearby sites. See the fascinating Quebec House, the birthplace of General Wolfe. Travel back in time to the magical Hever Castle. Or have traditional English cream tea while visiting Westerham, a quintessentially English village that was frequented by the Churchills.

N.B. During late autumn and the winter seasons the house at Chartwell may be partly or fully closed. Please enquire or check the National Trust’s website for Chartwell.
