Attraction Information

Chartwell was the Churchill family home and is a fascinating resource for personal information on him. Ideal for school age kids and interested sorts, with a few peripheral attractions to soften the blow to those who just wanted to play today!

The rooms which Churchill frequented remain much as they were when he did, with personal pictures, books and mementoes offering intriguing behind the scenes insights into his life.

He loved the hillside gardens and they include the lakes he created himself, Lady Churchill's famous rose garden, the traditional kitchen garden and a playhouse built for Mary Soames. You can catch a tour of the garden every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 2pm.

There are also a natural style playground to be found here and excitingly a special place littered with sticks to build dens with! Add in the family picnic spots, circular family trails and you've got all the making of a lovely afternoon with as much education, or leisure, as you want from it.

Full of History 4 out of 5 stars

Absolutely beautiful house and gardens late spring/ summer. So much history is on show here and please do look out for Jock the marmalade Cat around the gardens.


Great! 5 out of 5 stars

Great historical house, full of interesting artefacts + lovely gardens. Nice family day out or even to take a stroll in the beautiful grounds. Definitely worth a visit + enjoy a bite of lunch or a cream tea in the well equipped restaurant! Looking forward to the next visit.
