My son and I toured the Churchill Museum, the Cabinet War Rooms, and the Churchill Bunker while visiting a relative in London before Christmas. We’re both history buffs, and WWII interests both of us. So, this museum seemed a perfect way to spend a day…or...More

Serious history students seeking insight to Winston Churchill, or Britain's World War Two history, will be disappointed by this London tourist attraction. The site is more tourist trap than museum. Fittingly located just past the even tackier "London Dungeon", the Britain At War Experience is...More

I really enjoyed viewing the actual War Rooms, the displays depicting day to day life there are great. The museum is massive, a little overwhelming. Some of the interactive displays are difficult to operate, but generally everything you could want to know about this time...More

I went along about 3pm without first booking so understandably there was a bit of a queue and wait time of half an hour. I would suggest you find out what time it opens and be there 20-30 minutes earlier if you don't want to...More

We purchased a Fast Track ticket prior to our trip and it helped a lot as the line was long. These rooms became operational after 10 Downing Street was damaged by bombing. Upon entering you are given an audio cassette so you can move through...More

Wonderful stop on our London trip. A real eye-opener on how Churchvill lived during the war as primeminister.

This is where Churchill directed WW2 from his underground bunker. It is very interesting to see and hear the audio stories of the people worked there. It also has a nice display of Churchill's life. We had a good time.

It was amazing to see the war museum. The one thing i really loved was the letters that Sir Winston Churchill send to his wife.

I love museums like this. It's like walking through a time warp. They have kept all the original furniture and personal souvenirs of the men and women that worked in this cramped space and made history during WWII. I highly recommend this tour to all...More

Very interesting and informative. Learned more than I already knew, how we nearly failed and Churchill brought us back (unpopular as he was)!

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
