I think we would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't crowded, but unfortunately it was. Definitely more for those very much into World War II & Churchill than those who are just mildly interested. We did the whole tour in a half hour.

Loved the room, full of vibrant history and the tape recordings made it easy to follow the content. One slight niggle they just kept on piling through more people and was so crowded it became uncomfortable in some smaller areas. We felt almost forced through some of the corridors because of the backlog of fellow tourists. I can't really blame... More

The War rooms are an excellent record and monument to the difficult/tragic years of WW2. They also contain more history about Churchill's life which, whilst interesting , is not really the place for that. It was a tad expensive £19 !but overall a great experience

The place is an actual place instead of what you read from books only. It is not really that interesting a place, but of course, if you love history and wants to be inside a part of what happened in the past, you must go.

If you are a history buff you will definitely recommend this look back at the events of Churchill's life and contributions to government and wartime England. You will need at least 2 hours to explore everything in the place.

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

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood 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.
