The War Rooms have been kept as they were when the site was shut down after WWII. Much of it is behind glass enclosures, so, our pictures didn't do it justice. It's a great history lesson on all that went on by the Allied Commanders and shows the ingenuity of those involved. Highly recommend a visit.

Takes you inside the actual subterranean rooms where the British military leadership directed the war effort that saved the world. We really felt what it must have been like and learned a lot about history of the time. In addition, they have opened a fantastic attached museum that focuses exclusively on Churchill documenting his entire life… VERY well done! We... More

Very interesting underground world of WW2 Britain's headquarters! You can truly see yourself where the decisions were made considering Britain's war effort.

To see where Churchhill and his decision makers basically lived for 6 years, then to hear when the war ended, they packed up their personal belongings and everything remained as it was for 30 years before it was opened to the public is astounding! The maps on the wall and the pin points of bombings, the tally of those killed,... More

Normally I do not like any museums, but this one was offered me a great experience and hence the 4 stars. You should allow at least 1:30 or 2 hours to go around.

We had planned a trip on the river but it was raining so instead we headed for King Charles Street. This is an amazing place. A fantastic museum and we were lucky as it was not too busy when we went in (however, there was a very long queue when we came out so maybe try early on in the... More

It takes you back to the world War II. This is a master piece. Everything is very well maintained and it actually feels that you are living in that era.

My husband and I found this attraction to be very interesting. The audio sets are awesome because they have corresponding numbers which makes it easy to follow which room you are viewing. The audio sets are also free which is a bonus! This attraction gave a person a really good insight into what it must have been like during the... 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.
