Picnics at Chartwell

Bring a picnic along on a visit to Chartwell, just remember to wrap up and prepare for whatever the British weather has to offer.

Perfect picnicking spot

If the weather is nice why not bring a picnic and sit yourself on the slope leading down to the lake and enjoy a spot of lunch in the backdrop of the Kent countryside. We've even got picnic benches in the field beside the carpark for those who need more support.

Bring a blanket

As Chartwell is known for its views, we do ask that people don't bring their own furniture such as tables and gazebos in to the grounds so that all visitors can enjoy the open spaces. There are picnic blankets in the shop from as little as £15 that you can lay out on the grass for more comfort.

Stop for supplies

There are plenty of things to takeaway in the café should you want to make your own picnic. Feel free to ask for your drinks to be done in a takeaway cup and there are plenty of snacks and rolls so you can grab and go. For the children, there's even kids lunchboxes available.
Now all you need to decide on is when you're visiting us at Chartwell.
