I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this museum. There are two parts to it; the war rooms, which contain a map room which remains exactly as it was left the day the war ended, and a room with a history of Churchill's life. We spent so long in the room about his life we had to rush... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Churchill War Rooms and Churchill Museum on our recent trip. Since my dad served in WWII, it was special to learn more about that time. Well done audio guide and interactive displays in the Churchill museum!

Fascinating to see how Churchill ran the war. They have preserved it as it was left. Incredible stories and well worth it. Don't miss this if you in London.

This attraction actually has two parts. The first is a tour of the underground war rooms used by the Churchill government during the bombardment of London during WWII. That part of the tour is a little claustrophobic but it is fascinating to view the conditions under which the government was operating. The second, more open part, is the Churchill museum... More

This was a super-interesting, super-well-done, super-awesome museum/attraction, and a great way to spend a cold, rainy, January morning. It really brought to life aspects of the war that were little-known to me in a such a poignant and realistic way, and really told the story of what these dedicated people and their fearless leader Churchill went through in order to...

Being a Londoner this was the last attraction I have visited after having visited all the other attractions many times in my life. This is really an undiscovered gem. I was very surprised at the incredible set up, it is as if you are in WW2. You can hear Churchill's voice and there is lots of information. You could easily... More

You can almost feel the bombs falling in London. Impressive how a group of man and woman worked to win the War from right here. Really a must see.

I'm not into war strategy etc., but this was certainly very interesting. Gives you a good insight into the goings on during WW2.

That little entrance is deceptive! This museum contains so much. You spend quite a bit of time in awe of the people and space where historical decisions were made. They were preserved like a time capsule. After the time learning about the war rooms, you end in a space to learn about Churchill himself. You need stamina to read everything... More

This is an incredible find and a must see for anyone who takes a great interest in twentieth century history, especially WWII in particular. A look into the underground bunker where Winston Churchill and his trusted staff (and even his wife) spent the war years, handling the business of helping to win the war.

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.
