How to book your visit and what to expect 

In England and Northern Ireland, our gardens, parks and countryside remain open for local people to exercise. Shops, houses and other indoor areas are closed, and cafes are takeaway only. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority and we urge you to book your visits in advance and stay local. All places in Wales are currently closed. Please check the property webpage before you travel.

Eating at Chartwell 

Our café outlet has reopened and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We've introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points and waymarked routes. We'll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you'll support us to make this a safe experience to everyone.

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.
