“An enjoyable walk through history”
Reviewed April 27, 2009

Chartwell is one of those places you experience on different levels. One is the beautiful place--the magnificent building; the interesting, attractively furnished rooms; the lovely grounds. The other is the feeling of being in the place where historic people lived, worked and entertained and imagining what went on there. I especially enjoyed seeing the wall which Sir Winston helped construct.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The facilities for visitors are well done including a cafe. Parking was plentiful. We noted that children are given a list of things to locate on the tour of the mansion to help keep their interest. The tour took us about half an hour, then we spent a lot of time wandering around the grounds. Highly recommended.
