Dover - Chartwell House – Home of Winston Churchill
(full day)

Chartwell was the home of Sir Winston Churchill from 1924 until the end of his life. Upon arrival at Chartwell you will be greeted by one of the curators for a private introductory talk about this historic home. Tea and coffee will be served with biscuits. Then visit the house with your guide and learn more about this fascinating political figure and his family life at Chartwell.

The rooms, left as they were in his lifetime, strongly evoke his career and wide interests, with pictures, maps, documents, photographs, books and personal mementoes.

Terrace gardens descend towards the lake. There are opportunities to inspect the brick laying that Sir Winston liked to do as a hobby and guests can also visit the studio, containing many of Sir Winstons’ paintings. Soak up the atmosphere of this home about which Churchill himself said “I love the place – a day away from Chartwell is a day wasted!” before returning to Dover in time for lunch.
