Another marvelous National Trust attraction, Chartwell is the home of Winston Churchill set up as it was in the 1930's with the input of Lady Churchill. Beautifully restored/maintained with very informative volunteers in every room to explain what one is seeing. Lovely gardens with a vista over two lakes to a wooded hillside. A particular attraction is the studio exhibiting... More

My husband and I love history, so while in the U.K., took a drive to Chartwell, Winston Churchill's home. We were immediately wowed by the beauty of the property. I took way too many photos! The house is well decorated (to the taste of Lady Churchill) and fairly modest and practical. But oh the views. The estate is now owned... More

Chartwell was Winston Churchill's family home, set in beautiful grounds. Looked after by the National Trust, you get to see how Winston and his family lived back in the day, with a useful self-guided tour sheet. There is a volunteer in each of the rooms who can help you out with specific questions. Churchill's Studio is a short distance away... More

This was not my first visit to this national trust property.However, it was like seeing it fresh after a number of years. The presence of the great man is evident in the memorabilia but you get the feeling of a family home. The paintings are another treat as is the wonderful grounds with the swimming pool and lake. It is... More

Summer time is always the better time to visit Chartwell for a number of reasons. Arriving early at any POI over weekends and bank holidays in summer time is always to be kept in mind.The car park is not so jam packed and queues to enter are shorter. Also that Winston Churchill's house is only open to the public during... More

A great insight and history lesson into the great man. Re-affirms his outstanding abilities and gift to the British peoples and the free world. The ground and house are exquisite. A great tribute to the National Trust.

Not a gĺood time to visit at present -I would wait at least ONE year until they have sorted the place out! Why???? There are loads of refurbishment happening to the house so scaffolding is around half of it. To add to this, you can't get into the house unless you are lucky enough to get an entry ticket. It...

Ok, I freely admit that I have always greatly admired Winston Churchill and consider him one of the greatest statesmen to have ever graced our planet. Sure wish that I could have met the great man but, alas, he was a bit before my time. We were honored to visit the home that he loved (and, in which he spent... More

We spent a wonderful day admiring the wonderful gardens and home of Winston Churchill. To see the home he so loved, the studio where he painted, the brick wall he himself built and the intimate places in the garden he cherished as solace when he felt the threat of the "black dog" was inspiring. A must see for Winston Churchill... More

Beautiful and very easy to live in house replete with a great deal of Churchill memorabilia and gifts from world leaders with a detailed explanation of his amazing life. One remarkable note besides the amazing gardens was all his paintings
