Shopping at Chartwell
The Chartwell shop, one of the largest in the National Trust, is now open and we're sure to have what you're looking for. From exclusive, seasonal National Trust ranges for the home and garden, plants, Chartwell memorabilia to souvenirs (plus a whole range of Jock merchandise for all his fans) - there's something for every occasion. The purchases you make help 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 avaliable 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. We can only accept card payments, contactless whenever possible. We're sorry, but the second-hand bookshop remains closed for now, and we currently can't accept any book donations.
In line with government guidelines you are required to wear a face covering in our shops, cafés and food outlets in England from 24 July. Please bring one with you.
There is a fantastic selection of Churchill souvenirs available to remind you of your visit to Chartwell.Whether it's a bust of 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.
In the shop we sell both Pol Roger Champagne and 4711 cologne.
4711, one of Churchill's favourite colognes, has been made for over 200 years and its exact composition is still a closely guarded secret. A perfect gift for that special someone.
It's well known that Churchill was partial to a glass of champagne - Pol Roger in particular. In fact he was their most illustrious devotee and customer, which is why Pol Roger created their Prestige Cuvée in homage to Sir Winston Churchill. They were even mindful of the qualities that he sought in his champagne: robustness, a full-bodied character and relative maturity.
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.
