“Very interesting”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

This is a very interesting place to visit when in London. The use of the free audio guide means that there is not very many boards all over the place making the attraction all the better.
I was disappointed with the 'Winston Churchill Museum' part of the tour, this new area didn't seem to have the flow like the rest of the museum, it was unclear which way would be best to look at the displays (well my partner and I felt!)

“An hour to kill”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We were close by and had the London Pass had an hour before our next sight seeing. It was interesting but I would not go out of my way to see it.

“Great place for a history buff like me to visit”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This was fascinating not only to see how a successful war was waged while being directed from underground, but to see how the English people coped and what they had to live through. The ingenuity to build and staff this secret place where so many men and women worked under such difficult circumstances is inspiring. I went for an hour, but I need much more time than that.

“Fascinating place”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Booking on line means you don't have to queue - you can really get a feeling of the claustrophic and poor air quality back then, particularly when you surface back into the fresh air again. Laid out quite well although did find I was darting back and forth through Churchill's life at times. Would certainly recommend.

“Fabulous must see”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

If you have any interest in history, visit and plan to spend a few hours. It is in the actual underground bunkers where the war was managed - and they were locked up the day it was over and not reopened for 30 years, still looking the same way. Plus a great museum of remarkable Winston Churchill's life. Excellent!!
