Very interesting, would go back again.

Any history buff would enjoy this stop, one of the most interesting WW II tours I've experienced. I've read a lot about WW II and this brought it all to life, very worth while.

The whole experience is fantastic, although, the technology might have left Winston somewhat bemused. However, overall, a really interesting experience. A little difficult to find, but we sorted it. Well worth the visit, especially if you have 2 for 1 voucher. If you don't know what that is, Google it!

We went to the Churchill War Rooms mainly by luck as it was a rainy Sunday morning and w were running out of ideas for somewhere to go, we got there at about 10 and with all the tourists more interested in horse guards, we joined a very short queue inside the building,On purchasing our tickets we were offered an...

It was fascinating to go into the actual place where Churchill and his team developed WWII strategies. The audio tour is well done and added a lot to our experience. The attached Churchill museum was excellent. I didn't think I'd be that interested, but the museum captivated me and I left reluctantly. The museum is interactive and has many different... More

This museum was wonderful in that we were swept up right from the start and led on a fascinating journey to war time London. It was an eye-opener to realise how vulnerable those working in these chambers were and the many rooms of artifacts helped to place in context what it might have been like. We didn't plan on spending... More

I visited this site with a group of friends from Canada, and we were bullied and shouted at by the rudest individual I have ever come across. Our visit was in August 14 and two of us wrote a complaint about his behavious and (lack of) manners, so I sincerely hope that he will have been moved to a more... More

Brilliant place to visit especially with 2 for 1 London offer. Suggested time for visit 90 minutes but it would be easy to spend a whole day there. So much to see and so much fascinating detail to . assimilate. highly recommended

Having visited a number of years ago with a friend before the Churchill museum was added I was keen to return with my husband and children. It did not disappoint me on a second visit and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The audio tour is excellent...plenty of information but not too much ( there are extra recordings to hear if you... More

One can read about the blitz bombings of London in WWII but visiting the Churchill War Rooms gives a sense of the stress and strength of the British during those very dark times. The Churchill Museum is also there. Interesting, but the flow could be better organized. That said, visiting both in one go is well worth the visit.

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.
