This is a terrific facility that contains the preserved environs of the command center for the British armed forces during the entirety of WW2 and an extensively researched museum of the life of Winston Churchill. There are many emotions drawn out during the visit to be within such a genuine, historical environment and to learn about Churchill's life and a... More

I've been wanting to visit this museum for a long time and wasn't disappointed. But there's almost too much to see and, after two hours, we needed a rest. It's a shame they don't let visitors re-use their ticket as some attractions do just once. This would enable one to see the whole of the Churchill Museum besides the rest... More

My family loved this attraction. I had to run through the exhibit due to the tight, tight quarters. I just wanted to warn anyone else who might be claustrophobic.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Churchill and then some. I had hoped for more general info about life in London during the war, but there was still plenty to see. Recordings were helpful, but we wound up skipping a few to save time (still spent more than 2 hours there).

I had a problem with this museum on arrival. I was on a day trip to London and having such limited time, I had booked my entrance tickets in advance to save time. When we arrived we found a long queue and we were told that we still had to wait in it. That was very annoying as we spent... More

This is a very interesting view of Churchill's work rooms and where he met & planned with his various military leaders during WWII. Displays were nicely done and there were many of the original items in their original locations on display.

Visited here with my father, who is a history enthusiast, and my daughter and found it most interesting. They had the rooms set up like his bedroom and cabinet office which was really interesting and had some interactive displays using technology where you can enlarge and zoom in on artefacts etc. my daughter enjoyed this. There are also several of... More

I previewed this site before taking my students here for a class assignment. The entire museum was very informative, even if the corridors were a little confusing to navigate. The lighting is dim, which may be off-putting to some, but I thought it added an element of authenticity. My students enjoyed the war rooms more than other museums we visited,... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
