Came here with my husband whilst we were spending a weekend in London. We used our London Passes for entry which is highly recommended for value for money. Very interesting with lots of information available and the freedom to look around at your own pace. Headphones available to give you more details as you walk around. I wasn't looking forward...

During half term we took our grandson (age 15) to the Churchill War Room as he is doing World War II for his GCSE's. We all loved it and found it so interesting. We were in there for over 2 hours and found the listening devices a great help. You got to each display and tapped in the number and... More

Another off the beaten path option, this is the preserved bunker rooms of Churchill's time. Kept exactly as they left it, you will wind through the meeting rooms, offices, map rooms and sleeping rooms. there is a multi media section on Churchill which maps through his life. I could have spent hours there, although my husband and son were done... More

This was one of the highlights of my 2-day adventure in London! Marvellous museum and excellent historical depiction of WWII war rooms, used by Churchill and his military advisors etc. I spent my entire time at the museum until they kicked me out. Takes you on a journey through Churchill's life, career and personal life before, during and after WWII.... More

This museum preserves the rooms in which Winston Churchill lead the English through World War II. It has their personal quarters, the War Cabinet Room, the map room where every detail of the war was tracked on hug maps and where the most technologically advanced communications of the 1940's enable communication with all branches of the military and with the...

What an incredible site. You walk right back into 1940-45. I found the audio tour really interesting. The Churchill museum is included, and has lots of mixed media and terrific artifacts. The courage of Churchill, his cabinet, and the less famous staff who coordinated the war effort while London was being bombed are still an inspiration.

The Churchill War Rooms were left intact as WW@ ended. You can walk through the many aspects of Churchill during the war as well as his life. Absolutely fascinating. Worth a few hours to learn about this amazing man.

What a great place to go to learn about Churchill and where he ran the country during the war. The audio guide was very welcome and the whole attraction was a great bigger than first appeared. They have created a large museum which was very informative and overall you could spend hours at the attraction. WELL WORTH A VISIT.

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.
