If you have some spare hours in London, try the War Rooms. You'll be instantly transported back to the WWII years. There's a Churchill Museum inside too, which shows his life in depths. Very interesting!

This is an amazing 2 hour tour. A must see while in London. One of the finest secrets in LOndon...A bomb shelter for the Parliament during the London bombings in 2nd world war. Fantastic.

The marketing for this place should definitely better emphasize the fact that this is also a museum to Churchill himself, but that's where the complaints end. What an amazing museum! As you might expect, you get to explore the underground warren of rooms from which Sir Winston and his government prosecuted the war against the Axis powers. It's a thrill... More

Fascinating rooms just as they were after the end of the war plus wonderful interactive exhibits chronicling the lives and stories of the people who worked here as well as the people of London who endured the blitz. Along with this a special exhibit on Churhill, all fascinating. We went when it opened a felt we had the place to... More

Great little museum close to Westminster Abbey and parliament. Gives a great insight into who Churchill was and also the conditions his war cabinet lived in during WW2. Allow yourself about 2 hours to take it all in, lots to see and very interactive.

Exceptionally well done. Worthwhile to see the brain centre of WW2 for the Brits. Gives a real sense of the austere conditions that the military commanders and associated personnel had to endure.

We visited for my dads birthday we had a family including children and seniors. Good audio tour guides given as you come in which tells you some great information. It is easy to move around and half way has a good cafe that is reasonable to drink and eat in, limited food choice available. I purchased tickets from online but... More

This was perhaps my favourite attraction visited in our weeklong stay in London. I'm immaculately restored and maintained, these underground offices give a brilliant look at the working conditions and lifestyles of those who made some of the most crucial decisions in Britain's war effort. The Churchill museum visited as part of the war rooms deserves to be a separate... More

For a cold day couldn't have chosen a better thing to do. In the bunkers you can see how the cabinet lived there and where all the big decisions about England's moves during the war were made. Very interesting overall. Also the Churchill museum was very interesting. As a young foreigner you get to understand more how important this man... 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.
