This is where all of the British war was run from. Very detailed history of the life and times of Churchill. One of the best in London if you like the history of WWII

Firstly, the admission prices are very fair. Minors get in for free with valid ID e.g. Photo Oystercard. They give you free headsets to use to compliment the visuals of the place and the staff are very polite. A perfect place for anyone interested in history and perfect for those who recognize the importance of the Cabinet War Rooms during... More

We were not able to go first thing in the morning so the line was quite long when we arrived, but we were both very happy to have waited! The museum is very well done with plenty of fascinating information. As Americans, we were not well versed in a lot of Churchills life and we really enjoyed learning all the... More

Fascinating place. I recommend giving yourself lots of time to tour the place and listening to the audio device in each room. Really gives you a sense of the place. Also good for kids who are interested in history and the war. They have special audio devices for kids with similar information, but presented in a manner that is more... More

This is a perfect museum for those that love history, and even for people who don't. It gave you a great perspective on the end of WW2 and what an amazing leader Churchill was not only to England but the world. It's a bit of a maze to get through the exhibit but there was lots to see.

This museum is very well done and worth seeing. Very interesting to see where so many worked for months with little or no exposure to daylight during such an historic war. Much of this museum is based on how it was left when the war ended. Quite fascinating.

This is a great museum that not only tells about Churchill, but what life was like for those in WWII. I am a huge Churchill fan and appreciate that it didn't give a glossy portrayal of him, but also noted that he could be difficult. The displays were effective and creative. Don't miss this.

Wonderful self guided tour of the underground facility used by Churchill and his staff during WWII. Great to see history come alive by seeing these rooms and artifacts first hand. One rather unique exhibit consisted of two long "tables" with touch screen timelines which allowed the visitor to pull up specific days and see world events that had occurred. Much... More

My husband is a history buff, but I am not. When he mentioned going here, I was not overjoyed. However, I can say I enjoyed every minute of our two hours spent there. It was worth the money and the time, and it is now one of the highlights of our trip to London!

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.
