Chartwell

This Victorian red-brick house was the home of one of England’s, and possibly the world’s, greatest political leaders and international statesmen.

Chartwell was the family home of Sir Winston Churchill from 1922 until his death in 1965. The home is surrounded by beautiful grounds offering fantastic views over the Weald and South Downs of Kent and Sussex. Inside, the rooms have been preserved as they were laid out during Churchill’s life. See books, maps, trophies, gifts and other personal mementoes belonging to the former prime minister.

Be sure to walk through two rooms that display gifts Churchill received from people around the world. Look for a Lalique French cockerel given to Lady Churchill by former French President Charles de Gaulle. Notice the large visitors’ book in the residence’s hall, which is filled with the names of prominent 20th-century figures.

Admire the views across the terrace and over the gardens from the elegant arched windows of the dining room. Upstairs, notice the special desk in Churchill’s study which allowed the prime minister to work standing up.

Stroll through the beautiful gardens outside to enjoy impressive views over the Kentish hills. You can see the Marycot, a playhouse designed for Churchill’s youngest daughter Mary, as well as a pond where Churchill often sat to feed golden orfe fish. Check out the kitchen garden, which provided fresh fruit and vegetables for all of his homes.

Some of Churchill’s beloved family pets are buried on the property, including poodles Rufus I and Rufus II. Beyond the garden, view more than 800 acres (320 hectares) of farmland and woodland filled with trails.

In the orchard next to the kitchen garden lies Churchill’s studio, which holds the world’s largest collection of paintings that he created. Notice his palette, still covered in paint, resting beside his easel. A small room near the door holds some of his unfinished canvasses.

Chartwell is located 2 miles (3 kilometers) south of Westerham in Kent. The house is about an hour's drive from London. It can also be reached by train or bus. Opening hours vary by season and there is an admission fee.
