Chartwell has been revealed as the most popular place to buy Christmas cards in the National Trust.

Based on 2012 sales figures, Churchill's former home in Westerham sells more Christmas cards than any other National Trust shop in the UK.

Not only this, but it seems that more people in the South East buy their festive cards from the National Trust than in any other region, as figures for sales per shop have shown.

Top selling cards

The National Trust’s best selling cards in 2012, which are once again available in 2013, are Peter Cross 'Cat Nav', 12 Days Christmas and O Christmas Tree, with the latter selling more in volume than any other card.

Emily Christmas, an aptly named spokesperson for Chartwell comments: “There are many wonderful upcoming events at Chartwell, so now is a great time to experience the house and grounds, as well as stock up on Christmas cards ahead of the festive season”.

Mrs Christmas adds: “The whole team are delighted that visitors are feeling festive on a visit here and we are very grateful to all those purchasing Christmas cards at Chartwell. 100 per cent of our profits help the Trust look after the places you love”.

So, why not start your own tradition and visit Chartwell to stock up on Christmas cards?
