Well worth adding to your busy itinerary in London. It will only take about an hour and a half and worth every minute

This place located right in central London is a must see. Prepare to spend at least a few hours to see and read all the exhibitions. It takes you right back to those days in the 40's and lets you imagine what it was like....More

It was a last minute decision to go to the Churchill War Rooms. We loved it. Loved the Winston Churchill exhibit. I wish we could have had more time to explore the attraction. Would definitely go back.

I would encourage you to visit the Churchill War Rooms if you are at all interested in WWII. I wish we had been able to spend more time here. We stayed about 2.5 hours but could have spent more time. It was one of the...More

Queued in the rain for an hour to get in but it was definitely worth the wait. The free audio guide was particularly useful, as it not only talked through the history of each room, but guided us on to the next exhibits. A large...More

This was one of the best places to see. We spent about 1 and 1/2 hours which was not nearly enough time. I recommend that you plan 3-4 hours for the visit to this site. It will be at the top of our list to...More

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

Hmmmm. If you have difficulty with confined spaces this may not be for you. There is not one window as it is entirely underground. Quite a bit of the War Rooms are actual tunnels with exhibits and you can move along at your... More
