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.


Due to the hillside location of Chartwell, the gardens and house can be difficult to navigate for those with access requirements. Please see our 'facilities and access' section on our homepage for more information and to download a full access statement.

House timed tickets

Entry to the house is on a timed ticket basis, running every 10 minutes from 11.30am Mon-Fri and from 11am on weekends.

These timed tickets give you entry to the house on a self-guided basis, but our friendly team of volunteers will be in each room to help answer your questions.

Most tickets are available to obtain on the day, on arrival, on a first come first served basis. A couple of timed slots are available to book in advance however; click on the links below to book your ticket today.

Bank Holidays

Only one timed slot is available to book in advance for Bank Holidays.

These days are very busy at Chartwell. For a calmer experience we recommend avoiding Bank Holidays. If you can't visit any other time then we recommend either booking the 12noon slot in advance for house, or arriving before midday to obtain a house ticket on arrival.
