Chartwell - FURTHER INFORMATION

Chartwell - Westerham visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Chartwell' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Kent.

Chartwell lies 2 miles south of Westerham in Kent, and was the home of Winston Churchill, who brought the house in 1922 and lived here until he died in 1965. It covers 300 acres and has stunning views over the Weald of Kent. Originally an Elizabethan Manor House with extensive Victorian alterations, Chartwell was in much need of refurbishment.

Chartwell is now managed by the National Trust. Within the house are a large collection of Churchill paintings, photographs and memorabilia. The dining room and Churchill's Study are among the highlights within Chartwell House itself. Next to the house is the Clementine's Rose Garden, and to the back of the house a lawn overlooks lakes within the grounds and the Weald of Kent.

Entrance fees apply to both Chartwell House and the grounds. Those wishing to tour the house will be given timed tickets. Chartwell is a very popular historic attraction, and gets very busy at peak periods. Outside the house is the National Trust shop and restaurant.
