This museum was done very well. It was a perfect balance between the typical museum feel of reading and seeing exhibits along with a lot of interactive exhibits. It was fascinating to visit. Our family has a wide arrange of ages from 7-16, and all of them enjoyed the museum.

The War Rooms are a great experience to see what it was like for the people fighting WWII from the capital. The audio guide is especially helpful in explaining the rooms and what is in the. The Churchill Museum section was particularly fascinating with many of Wiston's own belongings. It is well worth the money. As others have said there... More

I was not really interested in going to this place. My sister and brother in law recommended it. So we went and it was one of the best attractions we visited. I learned so much. The history is fascinating. It set up very well. A free audio tour comes with admission. A must visit. I even bought a book about... More

I visited the Churchill war rooms and came away very impressed. I had only recently been made aware of their existence and was thrilled to have an opportunity to see them first hand. This is a self guided tour along a set route with an audio device. It was well done and the tour supplied you with much information. When... More

So many of our friends told us that Churchill's underground wartime headquarters had to be a mandatory stop on our London tour. They were so right. It's part museum (lots of interesting exhibits and even a cafe) and part time capsule--mostly the latter. A labyrinth of narrow hallways take you through the living and working quarters of Churchill, his wife,... More

I've been meaning to visit the War Rooms for sometime and finally got there on a cold day. It was worth the wait. Absolutely fascinating look at what happened there during the war years. Churchill exhibition also interesting. The free handheld information guide was excellent and easy to use. You can get a combined ticket at a discount with HMS... 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.
