Chartwell Highlight Tours: Leadership and Legacy

Join one of our expert volunteer guides on an intimate tour of select rooms in the house at Chartwell, focusing on Sir Winston Churchill's leadership stories and his everlasting legacy.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Running Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays), our highlight tours take you around Chartwell house with one of our knowledgeable volunteer guides, including exclusive entrance into Sir Winston Churchill's bedroom.

Please note that as this is a highlight tour, it doesn't include access to all rooms of the house as a regular visit would. Those wanting to see the whole house will need to obtain a timed ticket to visit the house on a self-guided basis.

If you wish to also visit the gardens and estate, please feel free to arrive earlier than the time listed which is for the tour only. Normal admission into the gardens will still apply.

Please collect tickets at least ten minutes before the time stated. Tickets may be released to the public if not collected on time.
