Full description
Your guide will meet you at your hotel and you’ll head off on a private drive through the English countryside on this 1-3 hour tour. The duration of the tour depends on whether you choose to add a visit to Quebec House.

Set in the beautiful rolling hills of Kent, and just a short drive south of London, lies the family home of legendary former Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill.

The house is exactly as Churchill left it and much of the gardens are as he arranged them. It's well worth taking some time to explore the gardens and the larger estate.

Churchill was one of the most talented figures in history in the political arena, as was also an accomplished writer, historian, and artist. Many of his paintings are on display in a gallery on the estate.

Close by is Quebec House, the home of General Wolfe, who captured Quebec. You can visit the house in addition to Chartwell House for an additional fee.

Richard was absolutely terrific, one of the best tour guides ever!

Richard is an excellent guide, our trip to Chartwell couldn’t have been any better! He was so knowledgeable, willing to answer any question, and was really enjoyable. He was generous with his time and extremely helpful in understanding more about Churchill and English culture and history. We loved him so much we want to have him as our guide next time we go back to London! Could we possibly get his contact information?

The tour was more than exceptional. Richard provided a personal and touching moment for me. The right words at the right time and his personal thoughts and observations made it one of the most memorable occasions I have had being so close to a magnificent piece of truly living history. Richard and I enjoyed a remarkable day deep in The moment together. Like a true friend. Uncomporable.

Great day!

Chartwell Visit We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Chartwell. Our guide Stephen was wonderful and very knowledgeable and definitely added to our enjoyment. The gardens were beautiful and the visit to the studio an added benefit. If you are a Churchill fan this visit is a must and even if you aren't you will find it fascinating. Thanks Stephen for a great day!
