London, United Kingdom

Enjoy a visit to the home of legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. Ye Olde England Tours were the first to offer a tour to Chartwell with a private guide/driver in a comfortable car and you will be whisked away from busy London with a short drive through the beautiful English countryside to Chartwell House in the county of Kent.  See how Churchill left them and marvel at the gorgeous views that made him pick Chartwell as his family home and also some of the incredible paintings created by the great man himself.

Rarely can any man have been so talented, he being also a distinguished writer and notable historian as well as former soldier.  No visitor to Great Britain should miss the home of perhaps one of the most famous leaders in world history as well as his glorious landscaped gardens.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chartwell Mapleton Road, Westerham TN16 1PS England

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.

Kevin - Our tour guide was outstanding and should be considered for a raise and a promotion. He was part of our family for the day.

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.

Pick up at hotel and return. 80 acre estate of Chartwell beautiful. Richard had many fascinating things to point out as we went through the rooms of the house featuring not only being maintained as they were, but a number of awards he received, uniforms he wore, etc, and the separate studio with many of Churchill's paintings. Bottom floor has a collection of 50 curios from various eras of his life from childhood to 2nd run as pm. A look at the brick wall he layed himself, the way he arranged his extensive garden, and a number of benches donated for the garden by people wanting to honour him. There is a gift shop and cafe by the parking lot.

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!

This private tour provided exactly what was advertised. Richard, our guide, was very knowledgeable about Churchill and the grounds. Richard, a friendly, well-read gentleman, picked us up at our hotel and drove us to Chartwell in a comfortable sedan. Besides providing the transportation, he gave us the history of the towns we drove through. Upon arrival at Chartwell we had a chance to grab a cup of coffee / tea and wait briefly for our timed queue. In that time we toured the Gardens (saw the black swans that were brought here) and then started the tour through the house. Richard walked us through the residence explaining the rooms and exhibitions within. The house, maintained by the National Trust, is as it was when the Churchills lived there. As was told to me years before I went, " you feel as if Winston Churchill just left the room." Well worth it for the quality of a private tour, the tour guide and the transportation (which is through some narrow country roads). The tour was 6 hours from pick up to drop off back at the hotel. We really appreciated Richard's attention to detail.

We recently took the private tour to Chartwell with Kevin and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Kevin is such a knowledgeable and caring guide. It was a joy to tour with him. He is a history buff and has so much information to share. In the rare case that he does not know what you ask, he will make sure to find the answer. It was such an inspiring experience to visit Churchill's family estate. Touring the house is a wonderful opportunity to get a glimpse into the private life of this man who led his country through the dark days of World War II. Visiting Chartwell also gives you the opportunity to see most of Winston Churchill's art work. He was quite an accomplished artist and his studio is preserved and is a great setting for his art. The grounds are lovely as well. I highly recommend this tour with Kevin and Ye Olde England Tours. It was truly the highlight of our trip to London.

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.
