Private Tour: Chartwell House Tour from London

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After being picked up from your central London hotel by private vehicle, enjoy the scenic drive to Chartwell House, passing through the rolling countryside of Kent. As you arrive at the grand estate, hear more about its former residents – legendary Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and his family – from your guide.

    Discover more about the man himself as you head inside and follow your guide through the family rooms, still decorated in 1930s style. Get a sense for Churchill’s home life as you peek into the sitting room, study, dining room and library, and admire the huge display of personal items, including political memorabilia, photographs and gifts from all around the world, received during his time in office.

    Uncover the many talents of Churchill as you peek into his art studio and admire his original paintings, then head outside to explore the idyllic gardens. Stroll through the Kitchen Garden and Lady Churchill's rose garden, see the Churchill swimming pool, and spot black swans gliding around the lake.

    Before setting out on the return journey to London, perhaps make a stop at the café to enjoy a light lunch or a traditional English afternoon tea (own expense). Back in London, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

    I can’t speak for the tour operator but I rather doubt it. Taking into account the time it will take to collect your luggage and pass through customs it will be nearly nine o’clock. I suggest taking the train into... More
