He is arguably our most famous prime minister, known for rousing speeches, uncompromising wartime leadership and courageous opposition to appeasement.

Winston Churchill lived at 11 Morpeth Mansions between 1930 and 1939. The property is now available to rent for £2,235 a week

Now, the four bedroom home where Winston Churchill lived during his “wilderness years”, directly before World War II,  is being offered as a home to rent for £2,235 a week. The two-storey flat, which has been refurbished, but retains Churchill’s surprisingly small study, overlooks Westminster Cathedral, Big Ben and the Thames.

“11 Morpeth Mansions is the most significant of Churchill’s private London homes,” says Georgina Clarke, lettings director at Jackson-Stops & Staff, Pimlico branch, which is promoting the property.

Churchill, Britain’s prime minister during World War II and then again from 1951 to 1955, lived at Morpeth Mansions from 1930 to 1939 and it’s from here that he coordinated his anti-appeasement campaign and received secret information about the re-arming of Germany.

“He acquired the apartment from Lloyd George and conducted many an important call from the famous study in the run-up to the Second World War and during the abdication crisis of Edward VIII over Mrs Simpson,” adds Clarke.

“The property has been refurbished to a high standard with beautiful oak floors and includes a small roof terrace with spectacular views.”

11 Morpeth Mansions in Westminster is for let unfurnished for £2,235 a week through Jackson-Stops & Staff.
