Explore indoors at Chartwell

From the studio where Sir Winston Churchill developed his passion for painting and where the largest single collection of his works remain, to our current exhibition, Churchill in 50 Objects, detailing his life through 50 of his own, carefully selected possessions, there is so much to see and do on a visit to Chartwell this winter.

Churchill's Christmas Present: A Story Of Wartime Friendship at Chartwell 

By the Christmas of 1941 war had taken hold of Europe, with many people having to leave their homes as a result. Even royalty had to flee their countries, with King Peter II of Yugoslavia finding refuge in Britain. This silver cigar box, a Christmas present from Peter to Winston, represents the wartime friendship forged between the two.
