  • Very informative and knowledgeable volunteers. Wonderful to see where arguably our greatest Prime Minister lived. The location is lovely and the gardens well cared for. It is currently undergoing a substantial restoration of the exterior of the building so be aware of scaffolding spoiling some photographic opportunities. However, I am never disappointed when I go here.
  • Must visit this place if you love history. So many of Sir Winston Churchill's medals and memories there and they have kept the most in original condition. The largest collection of his paintings in the world too. Loved it there.
  • Beautiful grounds. The guides were very informative and friendly giving a real insight into the history and how we could find our more.
  • Beautiful grounds and historically interesting about the life of Winston Churchill. I especially liked his painting studio and the kitchen garden.
  • This was one of the most interesting places I have ever visited. I wouldn't have believed Winston Churchill did snd achieved so much in his life. He was an amazing man. Both the house and gardens were so fascinating, I would definitely go again.
