Best to book tickets if possible as you walk past the queue to enter very quickly. The venue is really interesting with lots to see and read. The various rooms are well designed with lots of artifacts to look at with great write ups that...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

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.

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

My daughter and I recently took a trip together and spent some time in London. Not having been there before, we wanted to hit some of the basic tourist attractions. Surprisingly, my daughter wanted to go to the Churchill museum, which was also on my...More

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
