If you like history, especially World War II history, this is a must see. You will walk through the British Headquarters of the World War II command. The original rooms and most of the original furniture and equipment are still there. This sight is also a fantastic tribute to Winston Churchill, offering a fantastic documenting of his life from childhood... More

I really felt like I was touching history here. This place is awesome but it's just an amazing experience to be in the same room as the Winston Churchhill was in! Really really amazing!

Great place to visit if you are interested in the second world war and social history. It has a nice little cafe and gift shop.

This is a very well done presentation of Churchill's life . I learned a great deal going through this museum. We arrived at 9:45 am on a Sunday. It opened at 9:30 and was already quite full. It was very crowded by the time we left. It is set up in such a way that it is difficult to see... More

Very lifelike displays, an excellent re-creation of the world war II era. The audio guide (included in the price) was especially helpful in re-imagining Churchill and his men leading the war efforts. For a history buff, this is a must-see while in London.

I pre booked the tickets and I'm glad I did there was quite a que to get in. Once in the museum it was very interesting. To see the cabinet war room with the famous names that would have sat in the meetings was fantastic. The rooms were very basic and as for the kitchen the cooks must have been... More

This was our very first stop in London and it really set the tone for beginning to understand and appreciate the people of the U.K. And their history. You can easily spend several hours wondering from room to room. Many of the displays have numbers assigned to them and you can use the handheld guide and key in the number... More

We visited our final day and only had about an hour to spend there once we got in. It was raining so the line only took about 20 minutes. Other days the line looked much longer than that. Once inside it was a interesting walk through World War 2 and what Churchill had to deal with. We didn't spend as... More

Great for a day trip out. Make sure you stay at the start to listen to one of the quick talks and listen to the radio throughout to find out lots of interesting information.

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.
