    Chartwell
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    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.

Thank-you so much for your wonderful review. Chartwell is such an interesting house with so much to see inside and then to top all of that the gardens are incredible too. Richard is a lovely man too and he was thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the day with him. Thank-you again for booking with Ye Olde England Tours and our original Chartwell House Tour from London.

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

Thank you kindly for your generous review. We’re so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Chartwell with Ye Olde England Tours and Richard was very gratified to learn that you had such a good day. Sometimes the journey there is half the fun as the countryside and views are wonderful between London and Chartwell itself. I’m sure Churchill himself liked the fact that he could be so close to Westminster and yet feel in the middle of the countryside. Richard is a bit of a treasure himself and he loves going to Chartwell. Thankyou again for booking with us, we really appreciate it.

Thanks for your fabulous review Carla. I'm really glad that you enjoyed your tour to Chartwell. It is such a special place, especially in the summer and early Autumn with those lovely gardens. If you ever return to London, do look up one of Churchill related walks.

My wife and I took a tour of Chartwell this week. We learned more about Churchill, London, English history and culture, and much much more from Richard. Chartwell itself was extraordinary - and a perfect day trip out of London. But Richard really made it even more worthwhile

Chartwell is lovely isn't it? So much to take in and the gardens are always good to see but especially nice in June. We're glad that you enjoyed your tour with Ye Olde England Tours. Richard is something of a national treasure too! Thank-you for touring with us.
