  • Very lovely place. Grounds are well maintained and beautiful. The children's playground situated the other side of the house is a mission to reach especially with a 4 year old and activities were very poor. Not worth the trek over there to be honest. But grounds and house worth a visit.
  • Country home of Winston Churchill, fascinating piece of history. Lovely house and grounds, lots of artefacts to see. Full of history. Gets very busy so go early, easy parking. Good for picnics and children. Standing in his study gives one a unique feel for British history as one imagines him dictating his memoirs and personal view of British history of the English speaking peoples
  • Great and beautiful attraction. The grounds were great and the house was very interesting, and informative. It is very photogenic and there are lots of play areas for kids, if you are bringing them. My only criticism would be the pricing of food/parking. Over £6 for 2 small snacks + a drink and £4 parking (unless you are a National Trust member).
  • Chartwell is a country house near the town of Westerham, Kent in South East England. For over forty years it was the home of Winston Churchill. The house is very interesting with small exhibition at the end about Churchill’s life. Don’t miss his art studio, which is outside the house in the garden. Beautiful rose garden on the side of the house and impressive view from the front of the house. Great place to visit!
  • Excellent afternoon out even tho we didn't have time to see the house. Had talk in the studio - so many paintings to look at. And later a guided tour of the garden by a very knowledgeable volunteer. Beautiful gardens, amazing views and interesting history with a more personal slant on the life of Churchill.
