After being picked up from your central London hotel by private vehicle, enjoy the scenic drive to Chartwell House, passing through the rolling countryside of Kent. As you arrive at the grand estate, hear more about its former residents – legendary Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and his family – from your guide.

Discover more about the man himself as you head inside and follow your guide through the family rooms, still decorated in 1930s style. Get a sense for Churchill’s home life as you peek into the sitting room, study, dining room and library, and admire the huge display of personal items, including political memorabilia, photographs and gifts from all around the world, received during his time in office.

Uncover the many talents of Churchill as you peek into his art studio and admire his original paintings, then head outside to explore the idyllic gardens. Stroll through the Kitchen Garden and Lady Churchill's rose garden, see the Churchill swimming pool, and spot black swans gliding around the lake.

Before setting out on the return journey to London, perhaps make a stop at the café to enjoy a light lunch or a traditional English afternoon tea (own expense). Back in London, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Chartwell
We will arrive at Chartwell around 10.30am after which we can explore some of the wonderful gardens of Chartwell House, some of which designed and created by Sir Winston Churchill himself. Around 11.30am you will get to go inside Chartwell House, exploring the rooms and seeing the house as it was when the Churchill family lived here. During the visit there is the opportunity to see treasures and memorabilia from around the world that were gifted to the leader of the free-world. Chartwell House has a lovely cafe/restaurant which isn't included in the price but the chance to experience a cream tea and scone shouldn't be overlooked or perhaps a visit to Churchills Art Studio with dozens of his paintings on display is better if you're watching your figure. Churchill would no doubt have a few words to say on that subject! Finally the drive back to the starting point and you should be back around 3-3.30pm.

Churchill's Chartwell Home

Our guide Richard did a fantastic job going the extra mile to pick us up and deliver us back to our hotel near Heathrow. Everything with the tour went exactly as advertised. Chartwell provides first hand firsthand insight into Winston Churchill.

I thoroughly enjoyed this home. I loved the feeling of a country home where family can relax and enjoy the privacy and time together. I love that Winston Churchill stipulated that there must always be a cat and dogs were allowed to run around the garden.

Absolutely great trip to Chartwell with Nigel who was both extremely knowledgeable and witty. The time on the drive from London just flew by as Nigel was narrating the various sites and neighborhoods. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour!

A day at Chartwell
, Jul 2018
I can't rate this wonderful private tour and excellent guide with adequate superlatives. The day we spent with Gilly, our guide, will long be remembered by us. Not only was she intelligent and well-informed, but she was friendly, personable, and thoroughly pleasant to be with. We felt as if we were going with a friend, not a cicerone - she is the sort of delightful person we would invite to our home and she added immense pleasure to our day. We have had wonderful success with our Viator guides and will surely use their service again.

Our guide, Kevin, couldn't have been better. He was full of stories and information not only about Chartwell but other areas as well. Arrived punctually at our hotel and took us for an additional stop in London. Knowing we live part time in Texas he took us by a plaque commemorating the spot of the first official foreign office for Texas after it won its independence.

Driver on time and friendly. Thought driver would have more information on the site while touring there. Line long for lunch and hence had to skip, should have had more structure on timing at tour.

We had a wonderful experience with Kevin from Ye Olde England Tours! He made our trip to Chartwell one of the memorable days of our entire vacation. Vast knowledge of London and the local area, and a sense of what types of history and trivia we would like, helped us enjoy little treasures even beyond the day we spent with Kevin. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the area and the local history will always remind us of our wonderful day in Chartwell. We will certainly use this tour company again and will request Kevin. You should too!

The tour was great. Gilly was a great guide and would do another tour with her any time. It was great personal service and very well worth what I spend. Value was actually beyond what I spend.
