Visit the House at Chartwell

Chartwell was the family home of Winston Churchill. Filled with treasures from every aspect of Churchill’s life, the house here at Chartwell provides an opportunity to explore the home of one of Britain’s greatest leaders.

What can I see?

Discover the house that Churchill called home, where he brought up his young family. Decorated as it was in the 1930s, make your way through rooms like the library, study, sitting room and dining room displayed as if the family have only just left the room.

Explore the museum rooms filled with gifts that Churchill received and see the original collection that Churchill and the family kept at Chartwell.

As you make your way around the house uncover the home and family man behind the statesman.

About Timed Tickets

During our main season of 1 March - 3 November 2019, house timed tickets will run every 10 minutes throughout the day, from 11.30am Mon-Fri and from 11am on weekends. 

Your timed ticket will be for a self-guided visit to the house, as opposed to a tour. We have plenty of volunteers in the house though who are happy to answer any questions as you go around.

Obtaining a House Ticket

A majority of house tickets are available on the day on a first come first served basis and can be obtained from our visitor welcome centre which opens at 10am.

Only two timed slots can be booked in advance; Monday to Friday these are the 12 noon and 14.30 and Saturday to Sunday 15:15 and 15:45.

House tickets may sell out during our busiest periods – typically weekends and school holidays. Visitors arriving after midday during these times are advised to book their ticket in advance to guarantee their entry.
