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, but he was already 65 when the war began. We also need to see more of the park.

really enjoyed an afternoon visit here a couple of weeks ago. we had timed tickets for 14:00 and we´d booked the late afternoon tour of the house. we arrived early enough to allow us time to visit the ground, gardens and house at our own pace. all quite wonderful and particularly lovely on a sunny september day. sadly our timing wasn´t as perfect as we hoped...the interval between own unguided wanderings (excellent room stewards...most helpful, knowledgeable and friendly) thru the house and the guided tour didn´t leave us enough time to visit the studio. in hindsight we´d have been better spending our whole afternoon in the grounds, studio and garden and entering the house only at the time of our guided tour. the tour was indeed very good but other than actually seeing the great man´s bedroom and private bathroom it didn´t add any further insight into what we´d already learned. no matter...we´ll visit the studio and take a tour of the gardens next time. TIP...remember to visit cafe and shop BEFORE late afternoon tours and you will need to walk back to VIC and car park after tour. i´ll admit i was well and truly grateful for a sit down by the time i reached my car.

We arrived just before the house opened, car park was already busy but it was Sunday and half term with a Halloween trail for young children, Our house visit was timed and we had about an hour to wait which was no problem as the gardens surrounding the house were lovely to walk around on the warm and sunny day. The house tour was very interesting, information regarding the rooms on a large card available in several languages, quite a few visitors but you could spend as little or much time in each room. Volunteers were on hand with more information. Proceeded to the studio where we were lucky to receive a 15 min talk which enhanced the visit. The walks around the grounds were well signposted and the tree house and bomb crater seemed to be popular for children. The cafe was extremely busy but there were lots of tables, cakes were wonderful, large portions and the hot food also looked very good, shop and toilet facilities adjacent..
A great part of our history, an audio tour facility would enhance the tour even more.and possibly a weekday visit would be less busy.

My family & I visited Chartwell on a grey & drizzly day in mid October. Winston Churchill is a hero of mine & I had been looking forward to the visit for sometime.
The house is full of all sorts of memorabilia & history. There are many portraits some painted by the man himself. The premises are not as large as some may think but the available space is used well & of great interest. There is a studio outhouse rammed full of paintings. Sadly due to the weather we did'nt really et to see the gardens & parts of the estate.
Chartwell now belongs to The National Trust so members can park & have entry to the house as part of that membership.
I would recommend Chartwell to anyone with the slightest interest in Churchill,you will not be disappointed.
