Chartwell Court is a residential tower block in the centre of Brighton, part of the city of Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom. The tower is unusual in that is built directly on top of a car park serving the Churchill Square shopping centre. Construction work started in 1967 and continued until the following year.[1]

Chartwell Court is the second tallest building in the city of Brighton and Hove[2][3] and amongst the tallest in the surrounding county of East Sussex. Most flats have uninterrupted sea views,[4] and many also have views over the South Downs and the city.
