Channeling Churchill at Chartwell

Finally got to visit Chartwell House, the home of Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine.

The house is fascinating, you can really feel that this was a family home. But for me, and also for Churchill himself, it was the grounds that was to prove so inspirational and I can understand why he stated that a day away from Chartwell was a day wasted.

Lots of his paintings, including in his studio that he built after the war, probably I suspect at the insistence of Clementine who was probably tired of the smell of oil paint throughout the house. Also an original Monet painting too. Wow!!

The guides there are amazing and so knowledgeable, definitely worth a visit.
