Reality check

To be in the same place that Churchill and his staff made plans for survival in that time of history was overwhelmingly amazing.

It's quite expensive to get in, but with the guided tour conducted by a mobile phone-like device and a chance to see where history was made, it is quite a unique experience and most definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful museum that was incredibly well-preserved. It you have a chance to hear the docent speak at the beginning of the tour - it's well worth it! This museum can get crowded so try and go at the beginning or the end of the day.

A very informative insight into Churchill's life during WW2 deep below the streets of London. A tourist site not to be missed.

A set of underground rooms and bunkers that show how Churchill lived and operated for periods during the second world war. from these rooms, plans were drawn up and executed that changed the course of the war. The mix of period and modern is done well, so that you don't get jarred by how it has been done. A very... More

We put off going here for ages because of the price. But it really was worth every penny. (Note that you can get a discount by not paying the optional extra donation). It's really evocative of a time gone by, and makes you understand how it must have felt to live through the Blitz. Lots of original features to bring... More

This is amazing and interesting place to visit. If you have kids who don't get bored at interesting things then this is the place to bring them. It is a pretty dark place to visit. But with no natural light in there it's pretty hard to light all the places. Some rooms are closed off so you can only have... More

How fantastic to see how the war was won with maps and pins and simple colored telephones and typewriters compared to to Situatin Room in the Whithouse that we have seen on the movies. A great two hours of sightseeing.

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.
