Christmas group outings to Chartwell

Get your group into the festive cheer with a visit to Chartwell this Christmas season. Find the perfect present at our Christmas market or visit the house on weekends in December to experience Christmas with Clementine Churchill. For a calmer experience we recommend a visit to the gardens and studio Tuesday-Friday combined with a delicious Christmas lunch in our café.

Christmas market

Bring your group along for a shopping experience off the high street this festive season. Our popular Christmas Market is back for another year to help meet your shopping needs.

Discover a wide range of gifts to treat your friends (and yourself) with, many from local businesses and craftsman. From chocolates to candles, jewellery to antiques, there is something for everyone to be found.

When: 22-25 November, 10am-4pm

Property opening times

Garden: 10am-4pm    Studio: 12noon-3.30pm

Please note the house is closed on the weekend of the Christmas market for conservation work.

Explore the winter gardens before warming up with a Christmas lunch

Avoid the crowds this festive season by enjoying a visit to the gardens and Churchill's studio during the quieter times of Tuesday - Friday, when the house is closed.

Enjoy the serene views and the crisp winter air on a walk around the peaceful gardens before popping into the café for a Christmas lunch.

Our traditional Christmas lunch menu is full of mouth watering dishes and has been specially formulated to accomodate those with dietary requirements. Click here to download our festive menu.

Please note our Christmas lunch must be pre-booked and is only available Tue-Fri, 12noon-13.30pm.

Celebrate Christmas with Clemmie Churchill

A warm welcome awaits you at Chartwell this Christmas as we invite you to visit the house for a glimpse of what Christmas looked like with Winston's wife, Clemmie, in charge of Chartwell.

Find intricate origami decorations emulating the love letters sent between Winston and Clemmie over Christmas 1947, when Churchill was on holiday and Clemmie home in Kent. Dripping in white and gold flourishes with flavours of Marrakech creeping through, a unique festive style awaits you at Chartwell this December.

See the ground floor of the house decorated in festive finery, including two rooms that have never before been opened to the public: the Secretaries Room and the Nursery. The Drawing Room will also be open with our volunteers and staff working hard on the winter deep clean - do stop and ask them about the techniques they're using.

House opening times:

Dec 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 & 16, 11am-3pm
