World War 2 has always been a source of fascination and the Churchill War Rooms are flood in the way that they portray the reality of the work these politicians did during the Blitz. My one complaint would be that the museum does tend to idolise Churchill and skims or skips over some of the ugly deals or decisions he... More

It was certainly an attraction like none other I visited in London, access to the war time bunker offered an amazing insight into the war and Churchill, and educated me on a lot of facts I didn't know about the war time. The cafes and gift shops are also amazing characterful locations well built in to the bunkers.

That Churchill was able to steer England so brilliantly in their fight against the Nazis is all the more amazing when you see he planned his strategy in an underground bunker with little more than maps, a phone line and a very, very long extension cord. This is one of my favorite bits of living history in London. I love... More

Visiting the Churchill War Rooms is an unforgettable experience and can bring you back in time to 1940 when Churchill and his cabinet started to use this underground shelter. Every room of the underground war rooms has remained like it was in 1940. You can visit the Churchill bedroom, the meeting room where Churchill made decisions, the map rooms full... More

We enjoyed this place, but it felt a bit haphazard. The best part was the man who gave you a short speech as an introduction. It would have been great to walk through with him. I liked how many rooms were unchanged, but felt that some of the displays could have been better organized and the circuit that you walked... 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.
