Coach Trip to Chartwell - Sir Winston Churchill's House and Gardens
Chartwell was the much-loved Churchill family home from 1922 and the place from which Sir Winston drew inspiration until the end of his life.
The rooms remain much as they were when he lived here, with pictures, books and personal mementos evoking the career and wide-ranging interests of a great statesman, writer, painter and family man. New to 2019, is a new exhibition to give unique insight into the life of Churchill through 50 Objects.
The hillside gardens reflect Sir Winston’s love of the landscape and nature. They include the lakes he created, the kitchen garden and the Marycot, a playhouse designed for his youngest daughter Mary.
Beyond the gardens there is an expanse of woodland with looped trails and natural play areas. There's den building, a Canadian camp and opportunities to stretch your legs.
Cost: £20 National Trust Members
£35.50 Non National Trust Members
The price includes the coach fare, driver’s tip, and entrance to the venue.
Departs 8.30am and arrives back at approx 5.30pm.
