What an awesome place to visit. It is a must see while visiting London. You really get a sense of what Churchill and his Cabinet were up against during WWII while we listened to the commentary as we went from room - to room - like stepping back in time. There is too much to tell about this wonderful museum... More

It was extremely interesting for someone interested in history as myself, to see with my own eyes, the challenges Churchill faced at the start of WWII. The cramped accommodations in which to make decisions that decided on the fate of the European continent or even beyond

A very informative and interestingsnap shot of what it was like during the blitz. Fascinating insights, not just in to the historical highlights of the time, but also how they lived at the time. Also a fantastic room dedicated to the life history of Churchill which complemented the tour very well.

The Churchill War Rooms is more than a museum it is an amazing way to learn part of British History. Many interactive displays and videos will turn your visit into a true adventure. I was particularly impressed with a touch screen table top computer with a time-line of Churchill's life. Fortunately for me there was a teacher and here class... More

What a great museum! So educational and lots of learning opportunities not only in the Churchill war rooms, but in the attached Winston Churchill museum. If you like history, you will be very impressed with this museum! We did not allow enough time...could early have spent half a day here! This was covered in our London Pass and had a... More

A couple of practical pointers to begin. First, go there early. We went shortly after it opened and got in fairly quickly, when we left there was a long line. Also, the actual War Rooms have narrow halls, so you want to be there with as few people as possible. Second, if you are going to visit the CWR and... More

Worth the visit as most of the old war stuff is still intact in the rooms. Great narrative by the staff.

Very interesting and informative. Only bad thing I could say was the Churchill exhibition was a little dark and made reading difficult!

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.
