This attraction really gives you a feel of what went on during the war. The audio guides told you everything you could possibly want to know at each stage around the tour. There is so much to look at and so much information to absorb, I could have spent all day in there! Really enjoyed the trip and would recommend!

Wander through the underground bunker from which Churchill ran Britain during WWII, and explore an entire museum dedicated to his life and accomplishments. My only complaint is that the only way to get information is from one of those awful audio tour sets - I would far rather read about things than listen to an audio tour. I gave up... More

You can find no better place to understand World War II and Churchill's role in than this museum. It is fascinating.

We bought our tickets online in advance. We walked over after visiting Westminster Abbey. We arrived in the afternoon in early November (Tuesday) and there was no line. We picked up an audio headset that proved most useful during the tour. It was interesting to see this massive bunker and to know it is where Churchill and his staff lived... More

This was fantastic - they discovered the war room bunker a few years back and restored it to exactly as they found it, but accessible by the public. Excellent and friendly staff, great audio tour system, and fascinating history of the war effort in London. Amazing to see how these folks (military and civilian) worked and slept here, and to...

We were impressed by the knowledge of the very friendly staff . Although the exhibition is very easy to follow with guided audio tours ,free i might add. The staff are always on... More

Excellent even if you are not a history buff. You will learn a lot about history. If you are a history buff you will love all the interactive displays in the museum. You can spend a short time or a long time depending on your interest.

Since I'm a huge history nut, especially about WW! and WW2, this was one of the highlights of my trip to London. This is the actual place where Churchill directed the defense of London and directed the war. There is a Churchill Museum as well as the actual rooms, with authentic furnishings fro that period. The museum is certainly interesting,... More

This is more about Churchill and his life than the bunker it's self. Very informative but not as interesting at I thought. It's not really a bunker more of a cellar with a concrete slab on top. If you do want to learn about Churchill this is definitely your thing. You can buy the tickets using tesco club card vouchers... More

I really enjoy Winston Churchill and this tour did not dissapoint. You are able to realize the historical relevance of the place while you go through the tour and the museum is so well preserved. Make sure you spend time in the museum and read the quotes!

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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.
