It is well worth researching Churchill's time at Chartwell before visiting to get the maximum out of the tour. A memorable afternoon walking in the great man's footpaths and admiring his handiwork.

A visit is well worth while, lovely house and grounds and a very good cafe/restaurant. Plenty of information about our great man, his paintings and other hobbies - a really good visit.

We stayed at The Bakery at Tatsfield nr. Westerham. Would highly recommend the accommodation and restaurant and it is near Chartwell - about 6 miles away I think. Enjoy your trip!
