The war rooms bunker itself is more cramped and smaller than expected, given the scope and scale of what took place here. The Churchill museum adjoining is comprehensive and well executed. Altogether it is an emotionally charged experience for those who know (of) the man.

Well worth the entrance fee (two adults £36). Spent best part of 3 hours learning about Churchill the man as well as Churchill the Prime Minister. Very impressed with the variety of artefacts, interactive aids and attention to detail of the map rooms. A real must for anyone coming to London and think children over 7-8 would benefit most.

Great place. The War Rooms are informative and really well put together. They give you a realistic view on what it was like to live in London during WWII.

This is not for the claustrophobic but it is an outstanding look at Churchill's War. The rooms are all restored to their original look, giving a feel of the life underground , with the war raging above. It humanized history in a very personal way.Not to be missed.

Truly worth every minute we spent there. Could have spent more time but after a while knew we had reached the saturation level and will need to return next time.

Even though it is a tight space, it is well worth the visit. The war rooms are kept as they were in 1945 with interesting commentary. The museum is interesting although laid out in a rather confusing manner.

We should never forget the story of Churchill and the people of this country during that period of our history. This magnificent and compelling exhibition sets it out in a way that everyone can understand and appreciate. It is a masterpiece, a statement of the facts, a journey through the war years in the actual underground bunkers where it all... More

It was quite busy when we visited, but still felt able to see all the exhibits as the staff only allowed so many people in at a time to help aid congestion in the tunnels. Good insight into how the war was conducted from such a small location and how adaptable people were during such difficult times. The Churchill exhibit... More

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.
