Shopping at Chartwell
From Monday 12 April, the Chartwell shop will be reopening. One of the largest in the National Trust, our shop is sure to have what you're looking for. Find exclusive, seasonal National Trust ranges for the home and garden, plants, Chartwell memorabilia, and souvenirs (plus a whole range of Jock merchandise for all his fans) - there's something for every occasion. Every purchase you make on your visit helps us to care for Chartwell.
How it works...
We've introduced new measures to help keep everybody safe. There is a seperate entrance and exit door and hand sanitiser available upon entering the shop. We have removed some fixtures to create more space and placed stickers on the floor to help you with social distancing. There is a one-way queuing system in place and you will find protective screens at the till.
In line with government guidelines you are required to wear a face covering in our shops, cafés and food outlets in England. Please bring one with you.
The Chartwell Guidebook
If you're looking for both an accompaniment to your visit and a wonderful memento of your trip to Chartwell, we have you fully covered with our Chartwell guidebook. Especially with the house still closed, our expert guidebook covers the history of Chartwell right from before it was bought by the Churchills, to information on what can be found in both the house and surrounding gardens.
Pick one up from the Visitor Centre to read as you head round the grounds, or from the shop as a perfect takeaway from your visit.
There is a fantastic selection of Churchill souvenirs available to remind you of your visit to Chartwell. Whether it's from our extensive range of books on the man himself or maybe the iconic cigars, there's something there to keep the memory alive.
Churchill on the page
We stock a comprehensive range of Churchill related books ready to suit your interests.
The arum fabric was originally designed in the 1920’s and covers the chairs in the dining room at Chartwell.
Churchill himself produced the dissertation for the chairs, stating that they should be comfortable and compact so the table wasn’t too crowded with arms.
The family enjoyed many parties at Chartwell and towards the end of Churchills life the dining room was turned into a cinema.
The Second-hand Bookshop
The second-hand bookshop at Chartwell will be reopening on Monday 19 April 2021, 12pm to 4pm for you to browse our range of donated booked.
Please be mindful of social distancing inside the space and volunteers are onhand to support.
We are currently unable to accept any new books for donation but if you speak to a member of the team in the shop they are happy to take contact details for the future when further space becomes available.
