Explore indoors at Chartwell

Join us at Chartwell for a visit inside the house that Sir Winston Churchill bought for himself and his family. With the help of his wife, Clementine, the house has been arranged as it would have been throughout the many years they called Chartwell home. Don't miss a visit to our studio as well, where the largest single collection of his works remain.

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.
