Churchill was no fool. He certainly picked an idylic spot. Very interesting place to visit although half of the rooms are off limits. We were told that they will be opened sometime in the future

My friend and I visited yesterday after wanting to for a while now. On arrival we were shocked at the busy car park and nearly couldn’t find a space. Being a National Trust property, you had to pay to park which we thought cheeky considering...More

We spent the whole day at Chartwell and was not disappointed. We had prebooked a timed entry into the house and also booked a tour of Churchill's family life in the house. Excellent first rate and knowledgeable guides. As it was Halloween week and half-term...More

Not our first visit to Chartwell, but each time we find new things to see and do. It was particularly useful this time to think more about Churchill's early life - we realised that all we knew of him was from his wartime period onwards,...More

It's not the best for the disabled, I'm afraid, but don't let that put you off totally. I took my late partner there in a wheelchair and the staff did their level best to make her visit enlightening and enjoyable.

I saw a lift and I also saw staff helping someone with mobility issues, but not inside the house. But at least that says they are disability friendly. Why don't you give them a ring? If you are using a wheelchair, that... More

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!
