When scheduling your time The tower of London and Windsor Palace are more interesting. Not sure if I would have paid the entrance fee if it was not part of the London Pass. We did enjoy the tour though.

We seldom get the opportunity to walk through history, but that is exactly what you can do at the Churchill War Rooms. If you were expecting a vast, elaborate complex, you will be disappointed, which makes the complex all the more effective. It has an...More

The Churchill War Rooms are not to be missed. Winston Churchill is a leader I long for today. Visiting the war rooms, below ground level, where Churchill and his generals and many other people managed the war during the Blitz was humbling. Plan to spend...More

It was quiet when we visited and there was only a short wait. You are not allowed to take backpacks or suitcases into the War Rooms as there is limited space. I was a bit disappointed as there was not a lot of information about...More

This is a must-see while in London. The rooms are well-preserved with original maps, furniture, etc. The audio guide is excellent, with many first-hand accounts from those who spent weeks on end in this bunker. This museum makes history come alive.

First: Get a London Pass, extraordinary value & great way to see many of London's historical sites. For us, the Churchill War Rooms was a last minute add in, well worth the walk thru. You could probably spend anywhere from 1 to 3 hours learning...More

What a wonderful way to learn about the history of WWII. The entire exhibit is very well done. I learned a lot and it was very helpful in truly understanding what people endured in these war rooms. Supurb

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

I was there in December. The climate control seemed fine for the time, and I'm guessing the same is true for the summer months.
