One can see the actual WW II rooms where the British government and mi!itary monitored WWII. The main map room remains as was when it was closed after WWII. In the midst of the museum is an exhibit on Churchill's life. It is a bit confusing to follow as it starts with WWII and winds around the room. Artifacts include... More

Excellent, Enjoyed our visit, the information is well presented and very interesting. Good facilities and disabled access. It is very dark, and the only problem is that about 15-20% of written information cannot be read easily. I would suggest taking a little torch to help you read unless you have exceptional eyesight, otherwise a must when visiting London.

The Churchill War Rooms were the hidden central planning location for Britain during World War II. The challenges of fighting a war under constant threat of bombing have been re-created effectively, including some of the original equipment, photos, and papers. The audio guide was extremely useful, and the displays are excellent. The museum is a great way to step back... More

This was a must do on my husband's list for London. The attraction is very well done with the rooms left as they were after WWII ended. It was a very interesting "museum", but my only issue was the fact that the corridors are very narrow and it was somewhat claustrophobic.

Extremely Interesting and unknown to me before I visited. A very informative insight into the English war management and insight into Churchill's character.

The Churchill War Rooms are AMAZING!! Hidden underground and preserved beautifully, this exhibit literally throws you back to the later days of World War 2. Loved the actual maps on the walls with pin holes still showing. The adjoining Churchill Museum was also fascinating. Chocked so full with a multimedia celebration of this man's rich and full life, I could... More

Small queue on arrival. Shown quickly downstairs to ticket area. Given audio guide and followed the route through the corridors trying to take in as much as I could from the information and room sets that were on display. On entering The Churchill Museum section, although colour coded by different lighting,we found it a little confusing as to which way... More

This was one of the highlights of our European trip. From the moment we entered the Churchill War Rooms we felt as if we were stepping back in time. We spent the morning touring the War Rooms with a fascinating guided electronic tour. We then had a lovely lunch in the Switch Room Cafe. After lunch we stayed in the... More
