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.

Disappointing for a place as big as Chartwell. No better than a little local market ! Would not visit another year.

This is Winston and Clementine Churchill’s private home. There are excellent tours, but be sure to take the one that includes his studio, where we had a great docent presentation. The audio tour gives an insightful history into the lives of the Churchills. Lots of...More

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

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!
