Important notice -

The house and studio at Chartwell are now closed for conservation but the gardens, exhibition, shop and café are open. We've had to close a path in the woodland to protect the ground and carry out repairs to the path. Please follow the diversion.

Our work

The legacy of the Churchill's Chartwell Appeal 

In 2016, on the 50th anniversary of Chartwell opening to the public, the team at Chartwell launched a £7.1million appeal. Beginning with the purchase of precious Churchill heirlooms on long-term loan to Chartwell, the appeal aimed to increase access to the collection and story of Churchill and open new never-before-seen rooms to the public. In 2020, at the end of the appeal, we're now proud to share all of our achievements that keep Churchill's legacy here at Chartwell for you and future generations to see and enjoy.
