An Interesting Tour

We were very impressed with the museum and the exhibits there. It was a nice experience and the history of Mr. Churchill's underground bunker was intriguing.

If you are a Churchill or WWII buff this is the place for you. A fascinating exhibition showing the underground network of roims and offices from where Churchill and his war cabinet and military advisers conducted the war. The rooms are well preserved and presented and you quickly realise how cramped and claustrophobic it must have been. As a result... More

The War Rooms let the visitor get a feel for what it must have been like to serve Churchill and run a government at a time of crisis. We purchased tickets in advance (highly recommended) and rented an audio tour. Be sure not to skimp of the tour of the Churchill Museum which is locates in the War Rooms tour... More

If you are a history buff who is fascinated with WW II, as I am, then this is a must see attraction. This tour of Churchill's underground bunker, actually a fortified basement space, provides a fascinating look at the rooms used by Churchill and his cabinet to plot war strategy. Equally, if not more impressive, is the on-site museum of... More

We went the Tuesday after Easter. The Easter lines were so long - hours long. We bought out tickets on the IWM website which get you to the head of the line. This did not matter on Tuesday since the crowds were lite. Halfway thought out tour they lost power to the war room. They could not restore it. We... More

For a non lover of war history this museum is exceptional. It is extremely informative and interesting. Buy your tickets ahead of time to avoid the cue. Go early as it does get quite busy which makes it hard to enjoy the exhibits

This is what you'd expect - and if you're a history buff, you can't miss it. It isn't inexpensive, but this is modern London history here.

Visited with my son, it's a very interesting historical site with a museum to Churchill's life alongside. It is best to read up about Churchill first I think. It is a rather pricey museum but there are 2 for 1 offers on the railway that can help.

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.
