This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: National Trust Chartwell, Mapleton Road, Westerham TN16 1PS England
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.

Our guide Richard did a fantastic job going the extra mile to pick us up and deliver us back to our hotel near Heathrow. Everything with the tour went exactly as advertised. Chartwell provides first hand firsthand insight into Winston Churchill.
I thoroughly enjoyed this home. I loved the feeling of a country home where family can relax and enjoy the privacy and time together. I love that Winston Churchill stipulated that there must always be a cat and dogs were allowed to run around the garden.
The site was beautiful and interesting. Chock full of history.
We had the best guide we could possibly have asked for
I can't rate this wonderful private tour and excellent guide with adequate superlatives. The day we spent with Gilly, our guide, will long be remembered by us. Not only was she intelligent and well-informed, but she was friendly, personable, and thoroughly pleasant to be with. We felt as if we were going with a friend, not a cicerone - she is the sort of delightful person we would invite to our home and she added immense pleasure to our day. We have had wonderful success with our Viator guides and will surely use their service again.
Our guide, Kevin, couldn't have been better. He was full of stories and information not only about Chartwell but other areas as well. Arrived punctually at our hotel and took us for an additional stop in London. Knowing we live part time in Texas he took us by a plaque commemorating the spot of the first official foreign office for Texas after it won its independence.
We had a wonderful experience with Kevin from Ye Olde England Tours! He made our trip to Chartwell one of the memorable days of our entire vacation. Vast knowledge of London and the local area, and a sense of what types of history and trivia we would like, helped us enjoy little treasures even beyond the day we spent with Kevin. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the area and the local history will always remind us of our wonderful day in Chartwell. We will certainly use this tour company again and will request Kevin. You should too!
I felt very comfortable with Richard. He was full of information and very easy to talk to! It was a wonderful day!
The tour was great. Gilly was a great guide and would do another tour with her any time. It was great personal service and very well worth what I spend. Value was actually beyond what I spend.
It was our first time booking with Viator and we were quite pleased with everything.
We spent our Sunday with a great guide Kevin, who picked up at our hotel at the requested time and drove us to Chartwell in his very comfortable car.
While driving up he pointed out to many interesting sites in London and he was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. We highly recommend Kevin and this tour.
Driver on time and friendly. Thought driver would have more information on the site while touring there. Line long for lunch and hence had to skip, should have had more structure on timing at tour.
Enjoy a visit to the home of legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. Ye Olde England Tours were the first to offer a tour to Chartwell with a private guide/driver in a comfortable car and you will be whisked away from busy London with a short drive through the beautiful English countryside to Chartwell House in the county of Kent. See how Churchill left them and marvel at the gorgeous views that made him pick Chartwell as his family home and also some of the incredible paintings created by the great man himself.
Rarely can any man have been so talented, he being also a distinguished writer and notable historian as well as former soldier. No visitor to Great Britain should miss the home of perhaps one of the most famous leaders in world history as well as his glorious landscaped gardens.
