Private house tours

The front door at Chartwell

For a quiet visit of the house why not book a private house tour on Mondays at 10am? Have a guide all to yourself before the public arrive and available for groups of 15 to 30 people. Additional costs apply.

Make a day of it

For a perfect addition to your visit why not come to Chartwell for lunch in our private function room? Take a break in the Mulberry Room with a two course meal or even just cream teas and an introduction talk from one of our volunteers.
