This is one of the best museum/historical places that I have visited. It consists of two parts – a walking tour through the subterranean war planning base used by the British government during WWII as well as a separate museum dedicated to the life of Winston Churchill. The displays are very well done and the audio tour which is included... More

Huge museum area nearly at the end. Finishes off at a cafe and the obligatory gift shop. We were there for about 2 hours... More

Spent quite a bit of time here. Besides having room where Churchill bunkered down to command WW2, there is a wonderful Churchill museum. It is amazing that some of the rooms are exactly how they were left in 1946.

Fascinating tour underground of the bunker used in WW2 by Churchill and the government, a bit pricey at £19 but at least no time limit

This is the underground rooms the Churchill used during the war - much left as it was as the end of the war. As part of the £19 entrance fee you also get an audio guide. The exhibitions give a real insight into the life of Churchill both on a personal and professional level, set in the context of the... More

Found the flow thru the facility was not well marked. Enjoyed the visit but could be better demarcated. Probably missed some details due to this.

I had been wanting to visit this museum for years and eventually got a chance in August 2013. The bed where he slept the maps and plane movers and the cartoons all told their tale and looked so old fashioned and everything was small. The atmosphere was as if the occupants had just left and it was only the souvenir... 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.
