Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill's House

Chartwell in Kent was the home of Sir Winston Churchill from 1924 until the end of his life.

A family home, with stunning views over the Weald, the estate is a popular tourist attraction.

The house's rooms and gardens remain much as they were when he lived there, giving a unique insight into one of Britain's greatest statesmen.

The terraced gardens contain the lakes Sir Winston created and the water garden where he fed his fish.

Lady Churchill's rose garden and the Golden Rose Walk, a golden wedding anniversary gift from their children, are also highlights.

Many of Sir Winston's paintings can be seen in the garden studio.

Churchill remained living here until 1965 even though he hadn't owned the house since the 1940's.


His childhood home, Blenheim Palace near Oxford is considered the grandest in all of Europe. He is buried nearby.
