Hidden underground throughout WW2 in Whitehall, a stones throw from 10 Downing St, this is a fascinating flash back in time to 1945. The actual rooms are as they were when the war ended and it was closed down. Imagine Churchill sitting in those dimly lit rooms and no aircon with his cigars. There is also a newish addition which...

If you have any interest in World War II - You absolutely must go here. They have preserved everything - and it's just as it was during the War.

War rooms are repetitive and tiresome. The Churchill Museum is interesting, but is large and without proper guidance. A person gets tired and just not seeing what may be interested for oneself. Missing a map.

Having walked past this location so many times I finally visited the war rooms with my family, which was perfect. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest loved it and you will, too!

Worth the stop. Real history here. Not splashy for the kids, but a history buff's paradise. Near Whitehall. Everything from Chrchill's bed when he slept here on long nites, to wall maps of the war in Europe, and RAF positions.

Very well done and very informative. We need more men like WC. Well worth the admission. You need between 2 and 3 hours to absorb everything.
