This was my first visit to the Churchill War Rooms and it did not disappoint. It really gave you a feeling of what it must have been like during WW II for those workers underground not being sure of what was happening above them and living so closely with your fellow workers. The museum had a great exhibit too; I... More

I visited the Churchill War Rooms with my family, and I have to say that it was not only interesting for the adults but for the teens in the family aswell. If anyone is interested in War history then this is a must to see. We didn't book as we were using Tescos vouchers for payment and had no problems... More

This museum gave me a fascinating insight into Winston Churchill's life and the experiences of people who worked in the Cabinet War Rooms. I particularly enjoyed hearing fist-hand, personal recounts of people who worked with Churchill. We arrived at approximately 11 am and went straight in. However, when we left at 12:30 there was quite a long queue. It is... More

This is the underground headquarters where Churchill and his staff masterminded the defence of Britain and the eventual victory over Hitler in the second world war. And, with many of the rooms reconstructed exactly as they were, it's a fascinating place to visit. The whole tour takes about 90 minutes and gives you a unique view of how Churchill ran... More

The War rooms alone are worth a visit but the study of Churchills life adds to the value. The way that the war rooms and living quarters have been preserved, the understated nature of the displays add to the poignant experience. You get a sense of how diligently people worked in a time of peril and how normal this unreal... More

Great museum, very nice displays and informative. Entrance is 19 pounds (which isn't cheap) you enter and you first see the war rooms. With the audio guide you learn about the way in which they were used by the British leaders in WWII. You then step away from this part of the tour and go into the large section dedicated... More

Interesting to see how they lived underneath during the war and how small the rooms were except for the office where all the planing was taking place.

Everyone should visit the Churchill Wall Rooms to appreciate the lengths the British had to go to endure the war years. From the entrance stairs down to the working level all the way to the exit there was a surprise at every turn. It was hard to believe that we were walking around many feet right beneath the busy streets... More

Comprehensive info about Churchill, WW2 and the blitz. Mid week visit so no queue, concession ticket provided with no debate. Lots of information, good audio tour. Because of restricted space and narrow corridors suspect it could get cramped during busy periods. Spent full half day

Talk about a history overload. So much interesting information on Churchill and the war. We were there for 1 1/2 hours and could of stayed longer.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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.
