    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.

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.

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.

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 with all the additional context he provided about English life. He was one of the highlights of out 11 day stay in the UK. Well worth every penny.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

From a Travel Agents perspective. I use private touring companies for my clients all the time and Ye Olde England Tours stands out as one of the best. They were friendly and quick with responses to any questions my client had. Recently I confirmed this tour for a solo traveler and she could not have been happier. I made arrangements for her to be met at the airport when she arrived. Her guide *Gilly* was terrific, from the start she made my client feel welcomed. According to my client Gilly is very knowledgeable has personality plus and made her tour very special, she learned a lot and had a lot of fun. It was a wonderful way to start her trip. When she returns to England she has asked that I request Gilly again the next time. Anyone considering confirming a tour with Ye Olde England Tours should not hesitate. You will have a great experience, they take care to make sure you have a wonderful time.
