Churchill’s working life

The Chartwell Years

Chartwell was not only a family home but also the centre of Churchill’s working life for some forty four years, both as “the factory” for his writing and a place where he entertained a wide circle of influential friends. The Chartwell Years illustrates Churchill’s life there.

​The exhibition used Churchill’s words and those of his family and close associates to reveal something of this complex individual, as well as the history he helped to shape.

​Located in the old kitchens, the exhibition supports the tour around Chartwell and follows Churchill’s life through tumultuous world events. This is set against a background of an English lifestyle and outlook culture that few would recognise today.
