Chartwell is the only place in the world where objects that belonged to Churchill can be seen in their original domestic setting and they are intrinsic to his life and achievements. The appeal launched in 2016 aims to acquire hundreds of historic and personal objects that belonged to Churchill and keep them here at his home in Chartwell. As part of the appeal we have already opened Churchill's bedroom for visitors to see, with more never-before-seen rooms still to be supported.
" You may be sure that Clemmie and I will do our utmost to invest the house and gardens with every characteristic and trophy that will make it of interest in the future."
Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the irreplaceable treasures in our care. Memberships help to pay for some of the work we do. But they only go so far. Additional donations are crucial to maintaining our collections, from stunning works of silverware to personal keepsakes that bring the past to life. Your donation will go towards this project and other vital conservation work to our collections at this special place. With your support, we can continue to conserve, protect and provide access to these fascinating pieces of history. For ever, for everyone.
