I had a recommendation from a friend to visit Churchills war rooms and I had purchased a London pass for my visit to london and it was included in the price. It was busy when I arrived but not to the point where you couldn't enjoy the experience. The artefacts and items that where left there when it had been... More

I had heard nothing but positives going into this museum, and indeed, it was great to experience the history in the place it occurred. From the pictures we saw online, my son and I both naively imagined we would be roaming free through the rooms--it's not like that. You follow the warren of hallways past the rooms, and one wall...

The detail in the vignettes, the documentation, the audio guide, the layout and ease of viewing. PLEASE take 3-4 hours to see everything properly. The downstairs was sensory overload, but worth it

The Churchill War Rooms were used by Winston Churchill, his cabinet and military leaders to wage the battles of WWII. When the war was over the government sealed up the rooms. They opened the rooms a few years ago for tours. It was one of the more interesting places we visited in London.

Very interesting to see exactly how people lived and worked in London during the war. So amazing what they accomplished with such basic technology (pins on a map).

We had time constraints, which were not aided by the fascinating displays and presentations of the Churchill War rooms. One literally steps back in time to the Blitz of 1941, as the War Rooms were abandoned intact once it was over and made into a museum approximately 10 years later. It has since been upgraded to a "must see" for... More
